Hogwarts Legacy Accessibility Options Explained

According to an official post on the Portkey Games support website, Hogwarts Legacy will feature various visual and auditory options ranging from text-to-speech and subtitles to colorblind modes and screen magnifiers. The game will also include motor, cognitive and other general quality-of-life features, from varying difficulty options to sensitivity and camera adjustment. For anyone playing on the PlayStation 5, you can also use the gyro functionality of the DualSense controller to assist with in-game flight mechanics.

While many Hogwarts Legacy accessibility options will be toggleable in the in-game settings menu, some of these features, such as the screen magnifier, require you to enable zoom on your consoles. The process varies depending on your platform, with PS5 players being able to access this by going into Settings > Accessibility > Display and Sound > Zoom and Xbox players via Profile and System > Settings > Accessibility > Magnifier. This also works on Windows by pressing the Windows Key + Plus Key (+) and Windows Key + Esc to turn it off.
