This feature is currently available in English for beta participants with accounts registered to the U.S. and U.K. To get started, enable Voice Command (Preview) from the Settings menu. Then, call out “Hey, PlayStation!” and ask your PS5 console to find a game, open an app or setting, or control playback while enjoying a movie, TV show or song.”
New accessibility features rolled out with the latest PS5 firmware update include More Screen Reader languages in the form of six additional languages: Russian, Arabic, Dutch, Brazilian Portuguese, Polish, and Korean. Expanding the support to 15 languages in total which includes the current selection of United States English, United Kingdom English, Japanese, Italian, German, Spanish, Latin American Spanish, French and Canadian French.
PS System Software update
“You can now enable mono audio for headphones so the same audio is played from both the left and right headphones, instead of a stereo or 3D audio sound mix. This feature provides an added option to enhance the PS5 audio experience, particularly for players with unilateral hearing loss.”
