  1. Blind users of the sight use a number of programs to help them however going and clicking buttons can be awkward with those programs a chat command that they could run to follow someone would be great, even better if they could do it from a different channel and follow with a @ when someone is shoutouted out.

  2. I understand you want to make the platform more accessible for the visually impaired and that's great. I believe the decision to remove accessibility options is moving in the wrong direction. First of all you should add more terms and tags that are inclusive to the visually impaired instead. Secondly the word "Blind" does not ONLY apply to peoples with disabilities. It is basically the only word in the English language that correctly and accurately describes what is going on with the playthrough. The word Blind means - lacking awareness, judgment, or perception. It makes little sense to say you…

  3. OBS plugin that a live captioner could use - currently it doesn't seem there is any captioner-compatible software to use with OBS/Atem - this would mean higher accuracy captions for live broadcasts as currently accuracy isn't so great and also cuts out.

  4. Providing plain text emails is an important aspect of user accessibility. They're easier to look at and less error-prone to assistive technologies.
    It also plays a role in respecting user privacy.

  5. I have a visual disability, and it is ******* my eyes to associate a channel logo to the streamers name.

    Prior to the visual update, the channels found on the left side, when collapsed, only shows the logo, but when you mouseover, it expands the channel view and shows all of the streamers name.

    How it is now, I either have to expand the channel view, or mouse over each individual streamer to see who it is. Please revert it back to 'expand on mouseover' in collapse mode, rather than 'show info of a single streamer mouse over' in collapse…

  6. I’m speech impaired and a large amount of streaming relies on the streamer communicating with their audience, although typing while gaming is difficult I do think the ability to turn text into speech built in twitch for streamers would allow many streamers like me to produce content other than just gaming, I for one would love to do talk shows with friends about gaming/movies/anime etc but I’m held back because there’s no support for speech impaired streamers on twitch as far as I’m aware.

  8. It would be nice to have the option to have a light themed chat while in theatre mode for those of us who use light theme as default. Right now it switches to dark theme whenever theatre mode is enabled while watching a stream.

  10. 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)

  12. 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…

  13. Un metodo para que la gente sorda pueda enterarse de lo que pasa en los streams mejor, sería poner subtitulos o algun método parecido así ayudaría a la gente con esa discapacidad

  14. 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.

  15. I, like many other people, enjoy listening to streams before bed and often fall asleep to them. The problem is since Twitch is a streaming app it doesn't auto shut off. This means the stream will keep on running while I sleep. Sometimes I wake up and my phone has been running for eight hours straight because I didn't exit Twitch before sleeping. I think you should add a toggleable auto shut off feature that turns a stream off after 30 minutes. It should be toggleable so people can turn it off. Please add this, it would be a great…

  16. 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!

  17. 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…
