  1. I tried contact with Twitch BR, but without answer. So i think that i can't contact you all Twitch directly, so i will write here.

    I'm Ukyo, a people that is hearing impaired and i have a request. The addition of the badges that can show that the people have hearing impaired, is disabled etc., so streamers can see and try to comunicate in way that is useful.
    I'm tired of not receiving even a answer from streamer, even if i said that i'm hearing impaired.
    There are few streamers that i feel comfortable in interact with they, and you…

  2. Accessibility is very important to not only me but also my stream and I'm sure a lot of people feel the same way. It would be amazing if we can get some warning tags for things from Epilepsy to Colorblind viewers. This would not only warn our viewers but can also save a life. The worst thing we want as streamers is to hurt our viewers and have no control over it. These tags and be pre implemented or something we can add given game reviews. These tags can vary and even help those with mental health with warning tags…

  3. There are ALOT of creators on Twitch alone; MILLIONS of users. But, there is only one thing missing and it needs to be out in the forefront, we need a Disabled or Physically Disabled Tag on Twitch for gamers who are wheelchair bound. Out of every streamer on Twitch, I know of 2 creators and they are both amazing; so it would be nice to bring more eyes and give us a chance to shine.

  4. Neurological disease, Lou Gehrig's disease, Dystonia, Neuromyotonic. These are just a few issues people suffer from that are characterized by mild to severe muscle spasms, or "twitching." The community feels that the website name is a mischaracterization of a very common issue afflicting thousands of people who use the site. The name is ableist, offensive and disheartens many potential viewers and streamers.

  5. I like the previously posted idea, but no accessibility features should ever be locked as rewards behind achievements. Folks shouldn’t need to be affiliated or partners to provide captioning to their audiences.

  6. To be able to filter channels followed by "Last seen live" in reverse to allow for filtering of possibly inactive channels.

    This would help users at the 2,000 followed channels cap easily find who to unfollow to maintain a more active followed channels list.

  7. I use a TTS reader to read chat to my headphones, and mix it in with game audio and music. I've toyed with running two concurrent streams from my computer so that legally blind viewers could open both and have chat read to them in real-time, but it hasn't been stable enough. Not sure if possible, but if a secondary audio channel could be utilized by the broadcaster, those needing chat read to them could turn it on and control its volume to be able to keep up with chat.

    Alternatively, an in-page TTS reader might also be a good…

  8. Occasionally emotes contain text and letters that are a bit hard to read. I know Twitch accepts up to 112px emotes, but seems to use the smaller ones in chat. Simply having a little checkbox to show larger emotes would be super helpful to those with limited sight.

  9. With the ever growing cases of seizures and headaches from games and streams that induce a lot of flashing images, having a tag specifically for possible cases of epilepsy would help more than ever. People shouldn't worry about having to endanger their health for the sake of watching someone play a game.

  10. There have been a number of DJ dance/music channels on the front page recently. They automatically play when loading the page, and often have full screen quickly flashing effects. This triggers my photosensitivity/epilepsy a bit.

    I would like a way to opt out of those types of videos from either showing, or auto playing, on the front page.

  11. We could use a colorblind mode because some users (like myself) have a hard time with some colors blending in with the background of the dark theme.

  12. Selectable font sizes for chat that are separate from zooming the entire page with Ctrl+Mousewheel Up would be awesome, even if they don't evenly break. A really cool idea that I've had for a while is actively scaling text fonts, so things like "lol" fill the width of the chat frame, as opposed to longer messages being somewhat smaller.

    Additionally to this, simple color-specific modes for different eye conditions - black on yellow, high contrast white on black, yellow on blue - would be immensely helpful.

    A pie in the sky addition to this would be selectively highlighting chat messages…

  13. Every channel on Twitch should be accessible to folks who cannot hear the content or need to be able to read along with the broadcaster.

    Let's make closed captioning for every affiliate and partner channel available to everyone without a Twitch extension

  14. Those of us with chronic pain or other disabilities are not always able to keep a schedule that is consistent enough to apply for the org we program. The current requirements are built on able-bodies standards. There should be a way to include disabled folks who can’t stream on a set schedule and may need to take breaks from streaming, but stream consistently when they can and have good viewership and engagement when they do.

  15. Currently there is only 3 text alignment where you can only select "Left, Center, or Right" so whenever you select neither of them, the captions does not line up neatly to the same width of the box.

    We should have another option called Justify where it would line up all the text nicely which is more tidy, what justify looks like can be seen here - https://www.w3schools.com/cssref/playit.asp?filename=playcss_text-align&preval=justify

    Also, I'm surprised that dyslexia font is not included in the font section. Please add dyslexia font, it will be beneficial for those people as well.

    What do you guys think? I would…

  16. I've noticed that closed captioning automatically filters swearing. To be honest, this is less than ideal. It assumes your hard of hearing and hearing impaired users need to have language filtered for them, to a standard which non-hearing impaired users don't. An important part is all language translated accurately as possible, otherwise you are directly deciding what language is more important for the disabled client. If a person wants to engage with streamers that swear it should be their choice whether or not they want to see that content, not chosen for them.

    Please note: How to handle slurs within…

  17. Hello,

    My deaf friend and I have a helpful idea for deaf twitch users. We think deaf users should have a deaf badge to let everyone know that we are deaf. Streamers and viewers will know we are deaf and other people are deaf too. I don’t have to type I’m deaf like 3-5 times. My username looks like normal as everyone else and they will quickly know my ears are actually broken. My username is MadFlyTTV_SiN. I am a deaf streamer and a viewer too. I have had difficult time to reach some streamers who dint know that I…

  18. Please add and allow the ability to put users you follow into groups. Like a folder/group. So that when you see on the left, Followed Channels, or if you go to the channels you follow, you can easily see them grouped up in folders/groups.
    IE one example would be: Path of Exile streamers, you could label POE and put followed channels into that group.

    While you can see what game people are playing at the moment of course. Certain players main certain games. And so if you follow a bunch of people and see a bunch of people live. It…

  19. I log onto twitch to enjoy some stream content of my favorite streamer, game, or community for the day. I am encountered with streams without my choice(also known as consent) that I have no interest in, disagree with politically, feel are being pushed on me for political purposes, do not want to watch, do not even want to see for one second, and think I should not have to see. All I request is a simple option in user settings that allows me to opt out of hosts, raids, or "twitch" chosen streams on the home screen. This would improve…

  20. Some bugs can't be reported if you don't have the right category for it. For example the Twitch support website itself is buggy and you have no ideal way of reporting it. If the page itself is buggy and you can't reach some categories then it's pointless and needs an improvement. If we could have a category Other-Other for all other types of queries, it would be really nice.
