  1. Emotes for all user to indicate tone for those of us who cant tell tone from text. I personally was diagnosed with autism at a very young age and as such I struggle with telling tone, especially from text. Chat indication would help SIGNIFICANTLY for people like me.

  2. When Using the twitch app on iOS, the player either plays vertically or horizontally. However, when I plug my power cord in to charge my phone, I can't rotate my phone 180 degrees to keep player and chat in view. Player flips horizontally and doesn't show chat. Would be nice for player and chat to show when phone is flipped 180 degrees that the player and chat shows the vertical player layout.

  3. Easier editing in browsers on mobile Android and iPhone when it comes to using the creator dashboard.I notice when reviewing a VO or posting it not with the automatic function the browsers don't show all of the Tittle or Content as there is no sliders implemented making it difficult to do on mobile.And esp to post when mobility can be am issue or editing at pc or laptop at times.

  7. 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…

  8. I'd like to bring up an important matter regarding the accessibility of the Twitch application on LG TVs and Sony PlayStation. As someone who is Deaf, I rely on subtitles/closed captions to fully engage with the content on Twitch. Unfortunately, the absence of this feature on the LG TV and Sony PlayStation Twitch apps has been quite disappointing.

    The Problem:
    The current Twitch application on LG TVs and Sony PlayStations lacks subtitles/closed captions, making it challenging for users like me who depend on this feature to enjoy the platform to its fullest. While subtitles/closed captions are available on the PC…

  9. Hi Twitch! Screen reader users should be able to read and participate actively in chat like everyone else. However, translating chat into an audio signal is really tedious at this moment, because visual elements like all badges incl. subscriber-time of sub badges, and emotes cannot be filtered out.
    Especially when a lot of hype is happening in chat, emotes can become very overbearing when read out one by one. Therefore, I'd like to request a feature with which those visual elements and emote text can be filtered out, leaving the username and chat text only for translation into an audio…

  10. As the title says, please let people make new lines (and even a free space line) in text messages.

    For me as disabled streamer with problems recognizing the small letters bc of my eyes and problems with understanding too, it's horrible to get a 500 signs message with no free line in a big block.

    It's so hard to see/understand what people write. On bad days it's even impossible. That is useless stress and embarrassment for me, plus viewers aren't happy if their message is not/wrong understand too.

    New Lines and free spaces could make this so much better -…

  11. If you need everything to be bigger and use ctr + mouse wheel to zoom in in a browse, the amount of space left for the chat is very small.

    Remove the top subscribers above the chat window when zooming in.

  14. 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…

  15. 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.

  16. Being able to activate an epileptic mode, to avoid animated emotes that cause epilepsy, since in the chat they can appear anywhere and I would like to be able to deactivate that, and if it could also be put for the broadcast of the streamer it would be a great help.

  17. The idea is basically a built-in audio compressor for streams that is toggled on and off. Setting the feature on would limit how loud the stream sound can get in ways that manually changing the volume button couldn't. Some streamers—especially smaller/newer ones—won't have an audio compressor, leading to stream sound blaring at max volume if there is a technical difficulty, too loud in-game mics, or other situations.
    Here's a plausible example, you are watching a streamer's stream at 50% volume, and they are about to play a new game for the first time. The ingame volume settings are set to…

  18. Whenever I am watching a stream and they start a raffle or other interactive event, I normally feel very left out as my muscle-weakening disability makes it impossible for me to type the command fast enough. It would be great if any !command in the chat (or anywhere else on the page) could be a clickable link that pastes the entire command in my chat box, so I just have to press Send. This would help me feel included, and would likely help slow typers or viewers who live with dyslexia avoid having to correctly type every command. Thank you!

  19. 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…
