The news comes by way of Twitter user isaparrot, who says they are friends with someone in the firmware beta testing group.

According to this person, the new accessibility features include a text-to-speech option, as well as larger text, bold text, zoom, high contrast, and more. Check out the embedded image to see all of the new accessibility features.

PS4 2.50 will also introduce new data backup functionality (see the image above), according to the insider, who also revealed more about how the Suspend/Resume feature will work.

"Suspend/Resume while watching Netflix. The PS4 will pick up where your watching and not just reboot the entire app. It's really in memory," isaparrot wrote.

Addressing the leaked information, a Sony representative told GameSpot that an official announcement regarding the PS4's next firmware update is coming very soon.

"The next PS4 system software update will be released soon, and its features are currently being processed for quality assurance," the representative explained. "We will have more information on the update to share shortly."
