Choose one of the available languages. Text you enter is read aloud and text you speak is transcribed in this language to other players if they're also using chat transcription.

You can let your keyboard do the talking. Select Say something and then enter text using the on-screen keyboard. Your text is read aloud to the other players using the Voice Type you chose during set-up.
