  1. Repair the closed captions on rebroadcasts of livestreams. The captions work on the first stream of e.g. Critical Role, but not on the rebroadcasts.

  2. Captions show up in VODs if they are sent to Twitch through an OBS plugin. However, they do not seem to appear on Twitch clips on Twitter or in the Twitch Clips player.

  3. Currently, twitch has one Sign Language option for the stream language settings, which is American Sign Language.
    It would be good to see more options here, including a catch-all "Other Sign Language" for the smaller Sign Languages that may not be present in the list.

  4. Closed Captioning Uppercase is missing in the Closed Captions Options. When I say uppercase, I mean you should be free to use what font you want and then choose if you want all in uppercase, nor lowercase.

    I know "Small Capitals" font is in there but that is not what we want. For example someone set to Dyslexia font then click Uppercase option, and it would show all in uppercase for that font Dyslexia.

    In the effects tab, under Style section there should be a icon displaying this; https://i.imgur.com/MB21M68.png

    Where people can click on the button if they want to…

  6. Please support accessibility natively so we can be more inclusive. A broader audience can enjoy the content we're providing if Twitch supports Closed Captioning natively.

    Possible solution: (the suggestion) use one of the audio tracks as a dedicated voice channel for closed captioning (think OBS, SLOBS, SE.Live) and make it optional to include this channel in the VOD recording.

    Please continue to focus development on improving the platform and providing more accessiblity.

  7. 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…

  9. for people with photosensitive your seizure warning is pointless if streams play automatically on almost every page, a person can't even navigate to it with out taking a risk. Auto play of random streams increases the risk and make navigating the site a minefield, if it could be turned off people would be able to take their safety into their own hand and make choice about what they are able to watch.

  10. Hello
    I'm deaf I watch Twitch a lot of live broadcasts.
    But I do not understand anything of what they say and then I have an idea:
    Add a real-time subtitle translator in all languages in the viewer's choice will always be in all live broadcasts. And there will also be a font translation option or some type of translation
    Example: translate exactly what he said or
    Automatically corrects words
    Move subtitles wherever user wants.
    It can help not only deaf people it can be helpful to foreigners who can understand another language with the help of subtitles.
    And also…

  11. Like millions of others i have difficulties spelling. I have dyslexia, and it takes me about 4 mins to type a message this long. now try and participate in a chat room with a 4 minute spelling lag. it's impossible. a spell check would cut that in half or 3/4. for us who struggle if we can get a part of the word right spell check will get us the rest of the way. Please find a way to implement a spell check it would be a massive improvement.

  12. 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.

  13. Because I am on Universal Credit, due to health disabilities/ problems, it means, I can't complete the Affiliate forms.
    There SHOULD be updates to Twitch in the future either allowing those unfortunate like me to be able to buy certain features like Uploads, mostly Uploads or gain access to them.
    It just seems really unfair to those who has the same problems as I do.

  14. The current chat font on the iOS app is very small for the legally blind. Please add dynamic text support or the ability to increase the chat font size.

  15. The redesign has changed the default font to Roobert which has made it harder for me to read the text on the website.

    Helvetica is considered to be one of the most easily read fonts on a display. Please change the default font back to Helvetica

  16. Hi Twitch! Photo-sensitive Twitch enjoyer here. Could we please get an option to disable possible seizure inducing animated emotes? Examples being fast, flashing, rapid color alternating emotes that have become popular recently. I love the addition of animated emotes, but these specifically catch me off guard and could trigger a seizure while I'm chatting, or even live streaming.

  17. When you added the ability to have emotes appear in the text box, instead of the text that makes the emote appear, it broke the "Press Enter after message" option in stream deck buttons that type text wherever the cursor is.

    As a (physically disabled) mod who often needs to quickly type the same few commands for bots in another channel's chat, I use several of these stream deck buttons. This change has reduced the speed I can sent these commands by a lot. So, please restore the ability for stream deck buttons to send messages after typing them.

  18. The way Twitch currently works, it is very hard for an audience member to know if a stream they are entering could contain flashing images or lights. This is especially dangerous to viewers with a sensitivity to light. It could cause physical discomfort, pain, and in extreme cases death. Creators can be nice and warn their audience, however since new viewers can join at any time it is unreasonable to place the burden of constant warnings on a creator. So how do we fix it?
    I propose a new simple feature that can create mass warning and help prevent this…

  19. Right now you are only able to scroll through Twitch-Chat by using your Mouse Scroll Wheel. When you are on a Laptop that uses a Touch Mouse, you scroll by clicking the (too tiny) scroll bar to the right of Chat. When doing this, new Messages will bug your current position lower. So basically the Scroll Wheel is totally useless when using the Drag and Drop Scroll Wheel because new Messages make it impossible to read what you wanna read. I don't understand how this isn't fixed yet.

  20. Sometimes a streamer announces a specific time when they will go online and do something special (an event, an announcement, etc.). It would be cool if I could get a small sound alert when that streamer goes online so I can in the meantime play some game or do other stuff while waiting and don't have to watch the clock all the time.
