  1. Logging in for me can be relatively annoying every now and then as my computer doesn't save cookies for your website. I also have two-auth enabled. It would be nice if I could bookmark people's channels and have the page dark on page load without needing to login, or check the box in the top right. Maybe use some url GET call that just works with JS.

  2. 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

  3. Greetings,
    My name is Brandon Cole, and I am a totally blind Twitch streamer and viewer, as well as an accessibility consultant for video games, and an advocate for accessibility for the blind. I am attempting to climb the ranks as a streamer, and have currently reached
    affiliate status. However, this is not without its struggles. I have been forced to commission a friend of mine to log into my Twitch account to export
    my videos to my Youtube channel. I've had to do this because the screen for exporting videos is not accessible with screen reading software. I have…

  4. 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!

  5. I have problems with my vision, so reading chat is often pretty rough for me. In the past, I have been able to get around this by utilizing the vast chat appearance options available in FFZ, but Twitch's new chat has severely limited these options. Please either let the old FFZ back into the current chat or implement your own appearance options, but something really has to be done here.

    If some of these options are available, then I apologize, but they are not apparent how to access them.

    Thanks so much!

  6. 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…

  7. Using images in channel panels allows streamers a higher level of design control, but sacrifices readability for visually impaired viewers. Please allow an alt-text feature on these images so the text on them can be accessible.

  8. When change zoom on twitch web page change description buttons locations and this is so bad because usually set buttons in a determinate method so, for example, you have social buttons in the same column. So please or resize description buttons when change zoom, or give us possibility to set combination when buttons appear in 4 columns or 3 columns.

  9. So not just people who dont have any disabilities can watch I bet you guys and girls that even people with disabilities want to watch you stream. even deaf people but they dont know what the gamer is saying so why not let them take part in 100% of the stream and not half of it because they dont know what the gamer is thinking. It will get you more customers and I know every company wants more customers.

  10. It is something that has crossed my mind when I watch streamers past VODs: Is there really no option for CC to be added? How to go about it, I think would be the real challenge. I believe the best way would be to allow the option for the streamers themselves to add CC to their VODs and/or allow mods/a person they trust, to do it for them if they so wish. Another way that it could be done would be to allow streamers to flag videos they desire CC on and have a dedicated Twitch CC Provider then watch…

  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.
