Sony’s Access Controller has PS5 Accessibility UI and Virtual Controller Feature

    The Project Leonardo PS5 Accessibility controller has been officially renamed to the Access controller. The controller can be customized for players with disabilities. It includes interchangeable stick caps and buttons to meet different needs. Sony has built an Access Controller UI in the PS5 console, which allows users to customize button mappings and profiles. It also offers a virtual controller option.

    Hideaki Nishino is the senior vice president of platform experience for Sony Interactive Entertainment. He explains that players will be able to select the orientation they prefer for the Access Controller, assign different inputs to different buttons, toggle the buttons on and off, or map two inputs into the same button.

    This customization allows you to create profiles for specific games, and use two DualSense controllers or up to two Access Controllers as virtual controllers. Virtual controllers allow you to mix and match different devices, or play collaboratively with others. Sony also developed a toggle mode that works just like the caps lock on a keyboard to turn a button off or on without players having to hold it.

    We’re still waiting for pricing and release dates. Nishino says that Sony will have more information to share in the coming months about the Access Controller for PS5, such as more details on the product and the release date.
