consider adding CC availability to VODs for the deaf and hard of hearing.
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 the VOD and provide the CC for it. Obviously this one has more issues than the first option, considering the sheer amount of streamers and potential VODs, but it is an option that could be considered. Adding CC to live action, I understand would be a too costly endeavor and that's without considering the technical issues that might arise from it; but for a VOD it should be possible to have CC accessibility. Are there enough people out there who desire to have closed captions provided for the deaf and hard of hearing?
I think they will adding soon, since it already tested the new feature for Twitch channel exclusively and I've been contacted with the representative about this similar suggestion in some months ago, too.
