Blind users of your F1 games

Recommended Posts

hello. I am new round here so let me introduce myself. I ma marshall Fairbrother, I am totally blind and I enjoy playing your F1 games. At the minute due to my sight impairement I can only race round russia as taht is a track I know well, will be sad to see it go if the FIA removed it even though my home race is the UK. I will also post a carbon coppy of this post in the technical assistance area as I am not sure who this consurns more. I would like to make a feature request which I think would enable me to race other tracks. would it be possible to add a beep or sound on the side of the stereo field htat the corner is (on the track) and that the sound levels out and starts to pan centre as you come through the corner and can get on the power. A feature such as this one and an option under assists to turn it on / off for people who do and don't need it would be good. whether this be put in the first release of f1 2019 or a patch later I do not mind. a voice which reads out the menues would also be helpful but this option would be something for the future as I understand how long this would take to develope. thanks for reading and sorry for typing errors!

Wow, that is so cool! How did you manage to learn the Russian track? 

Would a racing line with sound help? There is a visual racing line on the track that turns color on to indicate you need to break for the corners. I think it would be easy to add a tone to the colour that would make it easier to race blind on the circuits. 

Do you know how to use Twitter? You could direct your question to the the game director: Lee Mather. His twitter handle is  @TheLeeMather

Or maybe @Faya can direct your post to the developers.

As I have no clue how blind people use the Codemasters Forums, I'll also tag @Hoo here (Sorry Hoo once again). Would be an interesting feature really.

thanks for the support on this topic. learned the track through hours of frustration, practice offline in timetrial then many penelties / disqualifications from races as I would always cornercut. the sound would be good but it is trying to work out which side the corner is on, if it could play on the side the corner is on (this is better when waring a headset) then that may well work. I do not use twitter unfortunately
