Accessibility Information and Configuration Should Be Part of Initial Console Setup
The ability to change console settings – high contrast, text to speech etc – before initial setup, including an audio prompt to turn on text to speech. This would allowing independent use from the moment of turning the device on for the first time.
This would also be an ideal point to educate first time users about what kind of functionality is available, for example by providing a captioned and audio described overview video.
Agreed. The whole point of having these things is to help people out it should be one of the first things a person can customize.
Yeah why is this not the first thing?
This would be an incredible idea. Having the option to go to the Ease of Access menu during the Initial set up would be a great way to have an accessible and independent initial set up process.
Windows 10 is a nice example, the setup process is fully voiced by default.
As of the dashboard updates that prepared for the Xbox One X launch, this can now be achieved during initial setup in terms of turning on Narrator at least. press and hold the Xbox button, then press menu and Narrator should activate. Alternatively, if you have previous settings stored on an external drive, you can connect it before powering on the console and they will be loaded in as part of setup once detected. I agree though, for ease of use it could definitely be good to have a prompt for accessibility features.
