Sonys Poor Design Choice Affecting Disabled Gamers
My sister was born without functioning vocal cords and is unable to speak . She loves gaming , and used the in game text chat offered by Sonys PlayStation 3 as a way to communicate with her friends and fellow gamers . Upon purcashing a PlayStation 4 we have found that they have not included the in game text chat as an option . So now my sister is limited as to what games she can play . I have tried contacting Sony and was told that there are no plans to put this option on the PlayStation 4 . I find this unacceptable , not just for my sister but for others with disabilities like the deaf . They rely on this feature to be active in online gaming . I was also told that all it would take to add this option was a system patch . So for those that can't speak for themselves I am making this petition . Please help me help them , by letting Sony know that they are segregating an entire section of their gaming community and it is unacceptable and changes need to be made to make the lives of the disabled better . If Sony is willing to take their money they should at least be willing to accommodate all gamers , not just those that can speak and hear .
