Microsoft adds Game Chat Transcription feature for Xbox One and Windows 10

Microsoft is rolling out new game chat transcription feature that will convert your game voice communications into text. This new pilot feature is available on Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs, and Halo Wars 2 will be the first game to support it. This 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.

Xbox Project Scorpio

Game Chat Transcription works in two ways:

  • Speech-to-text provides the ability to convert all player’s voice communications in the game chat into text, so the player using this feature can read the text on their screen in real-time.
  • Text-to-speech provides the ability for players using this feature to have their typed text spoken aloud to other players in the game.

Turning on Game Chat Transcription feature:

On Xbox One

  1. Go to Settings > All settings > Ease of Access > Game chat transcription.
  2. To transcribe other players’ voices into text, select Speech-to-text.
  3. 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.

On a Windows 10 PC

  1. Open the Xbox app and go to Settings > General > Game chat transcription.
  2. To transcribe other players’ voices into text, select Speech-to-text.
  3. To have your chat text read aloud to other players, select Text-to-speech.

The Game Chat Transcription is an accessiblity feature, hence found in Ease of Access, and not in the Gaming Settings. However, this new feature will benefit gamers more than anyone else. Gamers wouldn’t have to take the stress of typing while gaming, they can just speak out loud and this feature will convert their voice to text. So, could this be the new way of gaming? Let us know below.
