  1. My eyesight sucks and I have ADHD and dyslexia, so reading chat is already hard. I have my second monitor set to 200% text scaling just to be able to read it while streaming.

    There’s been so many times I’ve missed that different people have chatted because their usernames “blend in” - ie, for whatever reason a lot of people have their names set to that “dingy” teal which doesn’t contrast well. Add lowercase long-ish usernames, and I’m really slowing down to keep track of who’s who. Same for raids, when a bunch of unfamiliar usernames come blazing into chat.

  2. When you press Control + Space all the UI disappears. Im not sure this is a feature, but it clashes with Control+Command+Space which opens up the Emoji window. Thus, it's impossible to open the emoji window within chat. (MacOS)

  3. Loud sounds with streamer store is hurting my, and probaly, others hearing
    Beeing someone who watchs streams all day long while using PC, I need to report that some streamers are using the Stream Store in chat to sell audios and sounds with external app linked to the chat store.
    I liked the Idea, but now I can watch some streams with this feature, because they are using rocket, fireworks and some loud sounds, this is hurting my hearing, so I NEED to close the stream I was watching and search for another one. I dont want to remove store…

  5. The editable portion of the chat box contains not just the edit area but a bits button and an emote button. Typing on mobile can be tough and often I want to edit my message before posting to fix typos. After making edits in the middle of the message I often want to go to the end of the message and fix the last word or add something to the message.

    The problem? It's very difficult, even if using a stylus, to get the edit caret to the end of the text because the bits button is there.

    Since mobile…

  6. Since the new color design I find it really hard to focus (lurking and following my streamers) The dark theme especially is so contrasted that make my eyes hurt, I ended up lurking without even watching the page. I wish there was a better way to setup colors in twitch (not using shades or other addons for various browsers) or even have the option to revert to the old color theme!
    these things should matter more for viewers which make Twitch what it is, streamers won't be affected in any way!

  7. We NEED the option to turn off things we wish not to use or see.

    I don't need a daily notification about twitch prime, when i don't have it or even want it.

    Turn off "Twitch Suggestions", basically you're entire front page. It's essentially useless to me.

    Hide extensions before i enter a stream. Some people litter their screens with extensions and it's a giant turn off, let the viewer decide if we want them up or not. Instead of always being auto on.

    I think i'm making my point with what i'm asking for and it's NOT that hard…

  8. The way Twitch is currently set up, most people with moderate to severe disability(s) are entirely unable to join the community of streamers on equal ground. Forget Partner; just getting to Affiliate is a wall that not all of us have the equipment to climb over.

    On top of that, streamers have to choose either putting tags related to their games OR to their identity and community markers; am I putting "autistic" or "CC" or "hard of hearing" or "disabled or "nonbinary" or - or- or - OR.

    There's no consideration for this, for the many of us who are…

  9. I think it can be hard to hear and understand everything and can see in chat, many users have this problem too.
    So let the single users chose subtitles or not subtitles, just like they also have at YouTube.
    Steamers do not know this problem real and why no one chose subtitles.

  10. I want to be able to serve the Deaf, Hard of Hearing, and CODA communities, and I am not anywhere near fluent in American Sign Language. The process to set up closed captioning looks confusing, and I would be grateful to receive help to include under-served communities.

  11. I had an idea for Twitch that appeals to accessibility, so I think it's worth a look. A lot of streamers put a block of text in an image and use that as a clickable profile panel, but for people with slow connections where images won't load, or people who use screen readers, they won't get that same information. I was thinking if there was another box added for "alt text" when adding a panel, that would help a pile of people. I know there are a ton of people viewing on mobile, have poor eyesight, or are otherwise disabled…

  12. As a streamer & frequent twitch user, I used to love BTTV's black chat that was pure black background with bolder text, until they remove it. My idea is something similar to that, so I and others who used it could have an easier time reading chat.

  13. the icon for "stop raids for 1 hour" button is the same as the "raid channel button" and for people who are color blind, you cant tell the difference between what each button does.

    please make a new icon for the stop raid button.

  14. Can we add an ability for users to be able to translate closed captions? I recently added them to my stream to try to help a viewer who doesn't speak English and I could only talk to them through chat, but I was bummed to realize that he can't see them in his language.

    I realize that it would cost Twitch money to translate captions through a server, but it also seems like such a basic thing for the user experience. I'm sure there are streamers that I would like, but I can't understand their stream due to the language…
