World of Warcraft is one of the largest MMOs out there, with millions of active players all over the world. World of Warcraft’s players come from all walks of life, which means accessibility is especially vital to ensure that everyone can play. Today, World of Warcraft is releasing an accessibility-focused update, which includes a number of lovely accessibility features and a promise to further improve matters in World of Warcraft moving forward.To get more news about safe wow gold, you can visit official website.

World of Warcraft’s accessibility menu is expanding with today’s free update to make room for its new settings. There’s quite a bit to talk about here, so let’s get started:

Speech-to-text transcription. Players now have an option to automatically transcribe voice chat channels (from all players) into text, which can be accessed and perused at any time via an on-screen toggle.
Text chat narration. Players can also have all text chat narrated to them with a synthetic voice, with a wide number of options to control which chat channels and sources are narrated, the voice, speed, and volume of narration, and much more. There are also new chat commands to accompany this feature.
Text-to-speech transcription. Players now have access to a new “Voice” channel while in a voice chat. Anything that is typed into this channel will be automatically read with a synthetic voice to other members of the voice chat party.
Quest text contrast. A new accessibility option lets you trade out the low-contrast default background for quest text for a newer, high-contrast option with improved legibility.
Specular light control. Finally, new commands let players control the amount of specular light in the world, which controls the intensity of effects like light reflecting off water.
It’s always awesome to see accessibility features implemented in video games, especially ones as old and long-running as World of Warcraft (that’s played by so many different people). For fans of MMOs, World of Warcraft is certainly one of the best PC games, so it’s undeniably important to ensure that all of its many players have a fantastic experience with better inclusivity. Our own Jez Corden recently discussed how Xbox and Microsoft are driving accessibility in gaming forward.
