Today I’m really excited to share the mod Accessibility Captions, created by Zaphio!
Accessibility Captions is a QoL mod that aims to bring a better in-game experience for those with hearing loss and/or impairment in a clean and intuitive interface.
This mod is currently not sanctioned and is available in the modded realm only, at present.
How This Mod Works:
This mod displays captions on-screen with directional notation for the following sounds:
- Boss cues
- Other misc. sounds
The player can set the distance at which the accessibility captions appear based on their hearing loss (max: 50), and can move the captions around on their interface based on personal preference (by hitting enter and clicking and dragging the white box).
These captions are displayed for sounds that play in-game only (so will not play if the sound does not play).
Each caption has two directional indicators: red and green.
- In front: Both red and green indicators show
- Behind: No colored indicators show
- Right: Green indicator shows
- Left: Red indicator shows
Indicators change opacity based on distance, becoming more opaque the closer the sound is to the player.
Setting It Up:
All sounds are disabled by default. You need to enable sounds from the mod options menu.
Thank you to Nayre , Ganjii, and Incandescent for the play testing and feedback during this mod’s development.
