Accessibility Warning tags for Games.
Accessibility is very important to not only me but also my stream and I'm sure a lot of people feel the same way. It would be amazing if we can get some warning tags for things from Epilepsy to Colorblind viewers. This would not only warn our viewers but can also save a life. The worst thing we want as streamers is to hurt our viewers and have no control over it. These tags and be pre implemented or something we can add given game reviews. These tags can vary and even help those with mental health with warning tags for possible triggering content in a game.
Accessibility and content warnings are so important, and it would be amazing to avoid harming and / or potentially triggering streamers and viewers.
This is incredibly important and should be implemented. As well as allowing streamers to add tags manually, games that are known to contain potentially triggering content should automatically have tags applied.
The terms of service in Twitch outlines warnings about epilepsy, motion sensitivity, and flashing lights. It also warns about game titles and content that feature the same.
As far as other means of accessibility, it's not just about Twitch's policies - it's about catering to our viewers needs. Everything from colorblindness, hearing impairment, enlarged text, close captions, blurred motion graphics, high pitched sounds/unscheduled sounds.
Our content is there to reach our audience in the best way possible, to serve them well. A tag to help identify such high end content would reassure and caution a community that may be sensitive to some viewers present at home, including temporary visitors also present in the room that may become triggered by the elements of that content.
very happy to vote and support this we def need to be able to have these options they are more important than alot of folks know, thank you for ur ideas and efforts
I love this. This is so incredibly important and it would be so wonderful to have more accessibility on Twitch.
The fact that this isn't standard is wild to me. We already have a maturity warning. Thanks for bringing up this fantastic idea yesterday and pushing through to post this!
I would very much love something like this.
