FCO Accessibility
Version: 1.5
by: Baertram [More]
FCO Accessibility

This addon depends on the following libraries:
LibAddonMenu-2.0
-> Patched version 99 with text2speech for Accessbility mode is included!

LibAddonMenu Sound Slider Widget
LibGPS


This addon was created for (slightly) blind players and aims to use the accessibility mode of ESO, like the chat reader, to provide information to the chat, or play sounds to ease the navigation.

Here is an example video (including speech) describing the features and combinations of other addons that might help you too:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E4aU8KKVa0g
-> The mentioned "Addon pack", containing all the addons and libraries talked about in that video, can be found here (click me) on my dropbox



Please refrain from asking for more features. The game's API is for example not able to tell you the position or values of enemies/friends you are not actively looking at, nor is it able to provide you info of all locations/zones/POIs on the fly.
If I'm able to work on more features I'll do so (and if I find the time ). So what we got now is all you get for the moment, thanks for your understanding!



Important:

This addon uses d() debug messages to print chat to your locally viewed chat where the accessibility "chat reader" will read it to you.

If you use LibDebugLogger and DebugLogViewer the d() debug messages of addons will be kept in the DebugLogViewer UI, where the accessibility "chat reader" is not able to read them from!
If you enable accessibility mode's "chat reader" you must disable DebugLogViewer (LibDebugLogger can be kept enabled if needed for other addons!) in order to make this addon's text2chat features here work (the sound features work with DebugLogViewer enabled too), or to make other addon d() messages be read by the "chat reader"!


I also recommand to disable the companion pin at the compass, via the game's UI settings!
This will stop making the companion pin overlay other quest/group rally point/group leader/waypoint/or other compass pins!



Add text to the chat:
Add text to the chat and let the screen reader of the accessibility mode read it for you.
The chat can be prefixed by another text so the reader identifies it for you, that it was added by this addon to the chat.
The default prefix is the´ (Phonetic: Akut) character.
-> So each chat message of FCOAccessibility will start with ´ and followed by the text, so that the "chat reader" reads e.g. "Akut Interactable: Doorname"
and you know this is coming from FCOAccessibility, and was not added by any other addon debug messages (or player writing to the chat, allthough they get their name read out too).
  • Reticle: Show chat info about the NPC/critter/... (Criters can be disabled)
  • Reticle: Show chat info about the other player (Chosoe to show their race, class, level/CPs and/or alliance too)
  • Reticle: Show chat info about the interactable objects like doors/chests, and if it's criminal to interact with it
  • Choose if the reticle info should be shown in combat too
  • Reticle - Combat: Show the health of enemies in the chat, in percent. If health is above 30% the chat info will be shown in 10% steps, if below 30% it will be shown in 5% steps.
  • Disable reticle to chat (unit, player, interaction) automatically while grouped
  • If the automatic combat target markers are enabled the compass shows them and the name of the enemy, and thus will write it to the chat too
  • Group leader "clock position" 1 to 12, based on your view angle -> To easily follow your group leader you can add a custom prefix which is written to the chat for that clock position.



Play sounds as helpers:
Sounds (Plays repetively with a delay in between, to show you are "on track". You can choose the volume of the sound too)
-> Sound volume: ESO is not able to control the sound volume directly for particular played sounds, neither is it possible to tell it to play on right/left/front/back channels All addons can do is play the same sound multiple times to make it louder. But: this does not work for all sounds!
So if you choose e.g. volume 10 and it's the same as 1or 3, this sound is not supporting "louder plays", unfortunately.
  • Compass: Play a sound for the active wayshrine (if centered on the compass)
  • Compass: Play a sound for the actively tracked quest (if centered on the compass)
  • Compass: Play a sound for the group rally point (if centered on the compass)
  • Play a sound if you look into the group leader's direction.
    Choose an angle (in degree)
    Choose a distance. If you are below the sound will not play.
    Show the distance in the chat.
  • Combat: Enter or leave combat
  • Combat helpers/tips: Play sound on BLOCK, DODGE, INTERRUPT, IMBALANCED tip
  • Movement: Play sound if you try to move but cannot move (not due to being stunned but because you run against a wall or NPC etc.)
    Will check every 3 seconds if you try to move, but cannot move (and are not stunned and not interacting with something/someone).



Sounds played work in keyboard and gamepad mode.
The chat to text works in keyboard and gamepad mode.
But the chat reader is only available in gamepad mode + accessibility mode + chat reader enabled!


Other helpers:
  • Waypoint: Automatic removal if you get near the wayshrine
  • Combat helpers/tips: Shows BLOCK, DODGE, INTERRUPT, IMBALANCED (enemy->start a heavy attack on them then) info to chat
  • Passenger mount: Setting textbox for preferred @AccountName where you want to hop on his/her passenger mount (uses auto completion, and finds your friends/group/guild members via that. Press TABULATOR key to auto complete the name. If there are more than 1 matching you can use the UP and DOWN keys to select one)
  • Automatic combat target markers 1 to 8 on enemies during fight (they show at the compass too and the name of the enemies are shown as compass text to chat too) and will be removed as the enemy dies.
    If grouped: Only the group leader will currently add those target markers! Else the markers would jump between additions of group leader and other group members.
    Attention: If an enemy resets because you ran away the target marker will be kept on that enemy! It can help you find the enemy later again.
  • ZOs code currently got a bug where the narration volume is not saved accross logout & login. This addon will fix this BUT it can only load the last chosen sound volume as you are in the game world already. So loading screens will still be loud. This is due to restrictions to addons not able to do anything during loading screens or before them. But after the loading screen ended the volume will be set to the value you had chosen last before logout/reloadui/quit of the game.


Keybindings:
  • All togglable settings got a keybind


After installing the addon please visit the settings menu (ESC -> Settings -> AddOn settings) and configure it there to your needs!


Other addons:
Waypoints, Group & Map
Circonian's WaypointIt
Automatically set waypoints, and remove waypoints. In combination with the sounds of this addon it helps you to keep track of your quests.
It can also post quest step texts to the chat.
And provide the distance to the next waypoint.
It supports the accessibility "chat reader" for e.g. "Waypoint set", "Distance to waypoint" (only works if the arrow/dot at the reticle, pointing to the waypoint, is enabled!) and "Waypoint reached".
Settings for the accessibility chat reader start with "Accessibility:"!

Beam Me Up - Teleporting helper
-> BMU Gamepad mode plugin - For accessibility mode
Addon that helps you to teleport to your group leader, to all kind of zones, dungeons, delves etc. Shows a list of the possible maps/zones and if any group member/friend/guild member is in that zone you can teleport to them for free.
Also supports teleport to zones where currently no user is in (costs gold then and only works if you got at least 1 washrine unlocked in that zone).

Destinations
This addon will add multiple new pins on your compass and map which FCOAccessibility is capable to read out to you via text2speech then.
It will e.g. show extra pins on your map and compass, like quest NPC positions, cities, other POIs like delves, bosses, etc. (even if you have not yet found them before!).


Attributes (health, stamina, magicka) & Potion warning
Potion Taken Sound Fix & Alerts
Play sounds if your potion is ready, if the potion was taken, if a buff of a potion faded (e.g. Major * for crit chance/regen/vulnerability/...)
Play sounds based on thresholds (low, okay) of health/stamina/magicka
Choose the sound volume for the sounds.
Add chat text (with a customizable prefix) for all of the warnings/okay texts, e.g. Potion ready, potion taken, health/magicka/stamina low.


Ultimate & Weapon bar
FCO UltimateSound
Choosable if only in combat or out of combat too:
Play sound for your active weapon bar, upon changing the bars.
Play sound if your ultimate is ready (different sound possible per weapon bar)


Weapon & Armor
Auto recharge & repair
Set thresholds for your weapons charge value and automatically recharge them if below (needs charged Soul stones or crown soul stones!)
Set thresholds for your armor durability value and automatically repair them if below (needs matching repair kits for the level of your armor, or higher repair kits)
Chat output for charged/repaired items


Lockpicking
FCO Lockpicker
Change the sound played if the chamber of the lock is stressed enough.
Show a big green OKAY flag if you have met the correct chamber stressed value
Could be enhanced to show the lockpicks left to chat for the accessibility chat reader.


Quality of items
Color Blind Mode Show icons with romanic numbers I, II, III, IV or V for the different qualitities (white, green, blue, purple, gold) of items, at the item tooltips top center and at the item's inventory rows.
Attention: Maybe not working in Accessibility mode, as it uses the Gamepad UI and the screenshots so far only showed keyboard mode UI!


Class specific
Arcanist
EXOYsCruxTracker
This addon was build fro the Arcanist class, to help with visually and by sound for the collected "Crux".
Crux is a ressource you gain and loose during casting Arcanist skills. Kind of "collect 3 crux to do more dmg/heal more".


Game's settings
SyncedAccountSettings [Masteroshi430s Branch]
The game's settings like "Compass", "Map" and other is saved individually per character. But if you want to use the same settings at all of your characters you can help yourself with this addon.
It will copy the settings from one character to the other.


Game's keybinds
Votan's Keybinder
The keybinds of each of your characters is saved on the ESO server. So each new character got default keybinds again.
Votan has created this addon to bypass this restriction by copying the keybinds of the last logged in character (you need to have the addon enabled at that character, to properly save them first!) to your next logged in character (will be pasted automatically to that character).


Supported languages:
Currently the settings menu, and chat output prefix like "Compass:", "Reticle:", "Player", etc. are only available in English language.
Some chat output, like interactable items, NPC names etc. below the reticle, will be done in client language.

Thank you for the kind words and feedback, I'm very happy that I could help you with this, and I'm hoping that more addons, especially the ones supporting the gamepad modea leady, will recognize the accessibility mode and support it too in the future.
The very best additions can be done by ZOs and I hope there will be added more to ease the gameplay for you guys even more.
