TTS/Screenreader support for blind players

Postby Isabella Fivingpidging » Sun Oct 18, 2020 2:08 am

I would like to enable the speaking of text from within Doom, so that I can play it better. Specifically, when I am navigating a menu, I should be able to hear the option I am on read back to me. I would also like to be told what item I've just picked up, or the current ammo in a weapon when I switch to it.

Windows has an open-source abstraction library to handle communicating to the screenreader called Tolk: https://github.com/dkager/tolk/
However I have no clue how to integrate this into ZDoom, or how much effort it would take. I'm also not sure what to do about platforms other than windows.
