Accessibility Captions

Description
Helps those with hearing loss enjoy a better game experience.

Directional indicators
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

Configuration
All captions are disabled by default. You need to enable captions from the mod options menu.

To reposition the widget, press Enter to open the chat, and drag the white square.

Other mod settings:
  • Max Hearing Distance: Both red and green indicators show
  • Caption Font Size: No colored indicators show
  • Widget Direction: The direction in which the captions appear from the white anchor.


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).

I don't use this mod, but I noticed some players seem oblivious to events happening right behind them, so I'm giving you a thumb up

It's honestly very nice of you to think of something so helpful, major props! However, I don't know if it's just the limitations of the modding tools, but I'd replace the colors with arrows, to make direction instantly clear without learning what means what.

Good stuff!
I'm not hearing impaired myself, but I have friends who are, hoping this will get whitelisted someday.

@greenpakto Hi there. We've opted not to do that with mod as hearing loss is not a with or without sort of thing, and we'd like the mod to be flexible towards that. Assisting rather than conflicting. Users should not be punished in order to access accessibility. It is up to the user whether they would like to add this to their experience or not, and we like to think Fatshark will weigh that into consideration.

One thing that wasn't mentioned here was that the mod was developed, while to aid hearing impairments, does not denote directions of duplicate specials. So if there is more than one assassin up at a time, for example, the mod will only show the direction of one. This helps allow some level of fairness as well.

My hearing loss is not complete and I still die to disablers and specials. It is a tool rather and a complete and pinpoint accurate solve.
