Deaf Accessibility Issue
My deaf friend and I have a helpful idea for deaf twitch users. We think deaf users should have a deaf badge to let everyone know that we are deaf. Streamers and viewers will know we are deaf and other people are deaf too. I don’t have to type I’m deaf like 3-5 times. My username looks like normal as everyone else and they will quickly know my ears are actually broken. My username is MadFlyTTV_SiN. I am a deaf streamer and a viewer too. I have had difficult time to reach some streamers who dint know that I am deaf. I often commented that I am deaf but they didn’t notice until I have sent several messages. Some streamers never catch my messages at all, like I’m a ghost. I didn’t understand what they said which prevents me from enjoying being on Twitch. Some viewers literally asked me, “ are your speakers broken or don’t you know how to talk?” Nobody knows that I am deaf. It’s really painful for everyone who are deaf viewers. I hope I will receive a response email from you.
Thank you and Best regards,
