Offer a Dyslexia-friendly font choice.
The new font is difficult to read. In the past, I've used a browser extension to change the font but it doesn't work with the new layout. Please give us dyslexic users the option to switch the font to OpenDyslexic or another dyslexia friendly font. This is both an aesthetic and accessibility feature.
I agree, this really shouldn't be a difficult thing for Twitch to do and it would be so helpful for my community members with dyslexia!
I have never used OpenDyslexic font and I am as dyslexic as they can get 😂.
And I'm learning Web developpement and programming...
I'm digressing, so yes this should be a built in feature and if not they should make it easy to get the/a plug in. A little bit of assistance and help can go a long way 😉.
I am going to go and check out OpenDyslexic and if I like it I will change all my websites into that font. 😁
But yeah it's really hard for dyslexic people to monitor and ready chat boxes... And anything else for that matter and it would not just make our lives easier but everyone's lives. This is a win-win situation.
Not only for dyslectics. People with disorders such as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis and other conditions with severely limited energy reserves pay a huge cost reading hard to read fonts, causing them a decrease in uptime in general.
Note though: I've gotten FFZ to work to replace the new font. But having to rely on plugins to use twitch at a base level locks out use on other than your own machines.
