  2. I am a streamer I can't read my chat because I have a disability there needs to be a text to speech program that reads the chat out loud for people with disabilities Preferably something that works with OBS and the majority of streaming software's so streamers with disabilities can communicate with their viewers

  3. I have closed captions enabled by default on the twitch website. The captions display on videos when I'm watching from the mobile app (iOS), but it is currently not possible to access the settings or toggle captions on/off.

    This is a problem because I don't need captions on for every video, and they often cover important parts of the video on smaller screen sizes.

    Ideally, I would love to be able to change text size, color, opacity, and placement on the screen in mobile view like I can on desktop. It would be even better if I could choose to…

  4. 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…

  5. Subtítulos de calidad para la comunidad sorda en TWITCH.
    Hasta ahora la web: https://webcaptioner.com/ Era una gran ayuda para poner subtítulos en vivo en los canales, pero por desgracia la van a cerrar, dispone de muchos idiomas, puedes poner y modificar los subtítulos según se acople mejor a tu directo. Es bastante fiel a lo que traduce, incluso si alguna palabra la escribe mal, tiene la opción de poder corregirla y varias cosas más.
    Son muchas las personas sordas que juegan y hacen otros contenidos en Twitch, pero no todos los canales tienen subtítulos y aunque queramos seguir a alguna…

  6. 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.

  10. I don't know what window width Twitch imagines as a minimum, but it's clearly wider than my window width, as chat and the chat menu do NOT display on a channel page unless I maximize my window. This is utterly insane in 2023. The chat menu must ALWAYS show, no matter how narrow the window. I will not say how wide my window is, because my entire point is that it should not matter. The inventor of the WWW, Tim Berners-Lee, intended it to be device independent. That means that everything on the page should be accessible regardless of window…

  11. 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 -…

  12. 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.

  13. 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…

  15. 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!

  16. If the browser zoom level is changed , chat scrolling doesn't work.

    The chat keeps saying "Chat paused due to scroll" when I haven't scrolled anything.

    Whatever you're using to detect whether the chat has scrolled isn't taking into account the browser zoom level.

  17. 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.

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. 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.
