Subtitles for cinematics, lore objects, voice lines, etc.#621

Subtitels for cinematics would be a great addition for users who do not speak english or have hearing issues.

Having a deaf daughter and her deaf boyfriend that live here, I completely agree. They love playing games with us but without captions it is very hard for them to get the same enjoyment.

I wonder why it’s not in the game in the first place…

This would be fantastic, I’ve sadly missed a lot of lore and world building due to lack of subtitles. Would be really appreciated

While I’m not deaf myself, I have deaf family members and I always get annoyed when there aren’t any subtitles in games, because I find it easier to understand what is being spoken by reading the subtitles.

Merged Absence of subtitles in pt-br#2760

Spoken audio subtitles are critical for:

  • Accessibility
    • I find it difficult to understand spoken audio during particularly-active gameplay moments
  • Stylistic Preferences
    • Personally, I just absorb written content more easily than spoken dialogue
  • Emmersion
    • Being able to read the storyline as it progresses helps tremendously with an emmersive gameplay experience, and - given a good story - storyline adoption

From my subjective perspective, subtitles are necessary for games such as those in the Torchlight series. Lacking them is almost a game-breaking issue for me in Torchlight III.

Almost. I’ll still enjoy the game until subtitles can be worked into a release. :)

This is essential for me, specially because of the complete lack of separate volume controls. I can’t process speech properly unless it’s the only thing I’m hearing, and since that’s usually impossible, subtitles are a must, even if I’m fluent in the language.

I’m hard of hearing and it’s been really difficult for me to understand what’s going on during the scenes without subtitles (such as the lore items like the echo nodes, etc.)… this seems like a must from an accessibility standpoint.
