Microsoft added a new pilot feature on Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs called Game Chat Transcription. Microsoft says in a blog post that the new feature “allows speech-to-text and text-to-speech capabilities, offering a new way to communicate that creates a more accessible and inclusive gaming experience for everyone.”
Game Chat Transcription will be available in Halo Wars 2, though Microsoft says it will add support for more games in the future.
Here’s how you can turn on the Game Chat Transcription feature, according to Microsoft:
- Go to Settings > All settings > Ease of Access > Game Chat Transcription.
- To transcribe other players’ voices into text, select Speech-to-text.
- To have your chat text read aloud to other players, select Text-to-speech.
- To choose the voice that other players will hear when your chat text is read aloud, select one of the available voices in the Text-to-speech voice menu.
