Provide close captioning services for every affiliate and partner channel
Every channel on Twitch should be accessible to folks who cannot hear the content or need to be able to read along with the broadcaster.
Let's make closed captioning for every affiliate and partner channel available to everyone without a Twitch extension
Thiiiiis. It's so important and it's definitely possible. It should be a setting of the player, not an extension. It should just... be there. The Stream Closed Captioner by Gooseman is good in that it is moveable and you can change the size, etc, etc... but the fact that it needs to be a separate 3rd party rather than an available service makes us choose between other fun user experiences and necessary accessibility, it's also another thing we have to have running in the background, etc... it's just ridiculous there is no in house option. I hope that changes for all streams someday.
I agree - but I echo the sentiments below. It is needed for all streams. Purr.
All streams, not just affiliate and partner. Accessibility should never be locked behind achievements.
Add Closed Captions to all streams and not just large streams
