In a new ViDoc style trailer from Xbox, the team at Turn 10 Studios has detailed a range of “Blind Driving Assists” coming to the brand-new Forza Motorsport – in turn creating “the most accessible Forza Motorsport ever”.
The assists range from menu narration, text-to-speech/speech-to-text options and UI modes, to colourblind features, blind driving assists and “one touch driving” – enabling users to create a highly customised experience.
Xbox and Turn 10 have detailed a huge list of accessibility categories, which we’ll include down below to show the sheer scale of these efforts. If you want to gather a bit more info about each option, check out the Xbox Wire blog post for more details.

The video also shows us a little bit more gameplay for the upcoming title, which is always welcome, but clearly the focus is on all of these new accessibility options for now. We’d expect to see a more in-depth look at gameplay during the Xbox Summer Showcase this June.
All in all, this looks like a huge effort from the team to make Forza Motorsport a game that’s made for absolutely everyone, and we applaud their efforts in making the upcoming racer something that we can all enjoy.
