  1. Can we expect font size, color contrast, bigger emote options and other disability accessibility features for the Twitch UI (especially on mobile) soon?

  2. Mute is a real disability and it's awful to make those people remember that they can't hear anything.

  3. The redesign has changed the default font to Roobert which has made it harder for me to read the text on the website.

    Helvetica is considered to be one of the most easily read fonts on a display. Please change the default font back to Helvetica

  5. Hello,

    I'm here to ask if it is possible to create a specific TAG for Portuguese (Portugal) people, since every time, I try to find streamers from my country, It feels really hard to do it, and this happens because Portuguese tag includes as well the Brazilian people, and to be honest, I understand that, since they are "Portuguese" and it only makes sense, but its doesn't separate the "2" languages.

    My suggestion is, either create a TAG called "(TUGA) Portuguese slang for «Portuguese»" or maybe create a Brazilian TAG for their language, this will help for small streamers from…

  6. Have the possibility to choose between Portuguese or Portuguese-BR.
    They are similar languages, but have different expressions, different accents, and are written in a different way, just take a dictionary from both countries to see the difference.
    Youtube has the same problem, 95% of my friends don't see BR videos, If you want to have more fans you should make this separation.
    Best Regard
    Peter

  7. Some bugs can't be reported if you don't have the right category for it. For example the Twitch support website itself is buggy and you have no ideal way of reporting it. If the page itself is buggy and you can't reach some categories then it's pointless and needs an improvement. If we could have a category Other-Other for all other types of queries, it would be really nice.

  8. I log onto twitch to enjoy some stream content of my favorite streamer, game, or community for the day. I am encountered with streams without my choice(also known as consent) that I have no interest in, disagree with politically, feel are being pushed on me for political purposes, do not want to watch, do not even want to see for one second, and think I should not have to see. All I request is a simple option in user settings that allows me to opt out of hosts, raids, or "twitch" chosen streams on the home screen. This would improve…

  9. I know alot of my diffculties with games or on here is not beign able to find things to make my experience enjoyible. It took me 5 days to figure out how to unsubscribe, or even find a chat bot, high contrast fonts, or the ability to text to read or a warning whomever engages with me, knows Im blind, because no one ever reads the profiles. to understand Im not going to behave or interact with them the same way as sighted streamers

  10. Problem:
    - Search for "declare yourself autistic twitch tv" and no expected results will come.

    • The BIG issue:
      • TWTV has grown up and its too huge, there is not enough ppl on the earth that can track down what is being said, who is about to commit a crime, who is about to harass someone. That's why we should focus on the "system" itself. I am first focusing on the ppl with autism, the most sensible people, the others should be next.

    Major characteristics for people at the classic side of the autism spectrum that can manifest on TWTV:
    -…

  11. I'm experiencing an issue on Android 11 where the volume coming from any and all streams through the Twitch mobile app is distinctly quiet to the point of being inaudible unless I set my phone to max volume. This has caused intense usability and accessibility issues on my Android mobile phone as I have to set my phone to max volume to be able to hear any Twitch channel through speakers and/or headphones which causes intense pain when using any other sound/voice app such as Discord, messaging apps, etc. Is there a way the Twitch mobile app's volume can be…

  12. Add a chat to support on Twitch, because due to the complexity of the ticket, I have to wait months for an answer. I want to talk to a real employee, not a bot that will automatically respond to messages, because of this, there are some difficulties in solving the problem.

    Microsoft Support is more efficient than yours, you can call, live chat and email. Once again: I don’t want the bot to answer me, do Twitch for the better.

  14. The search form (and a few other forms) aren't screen reader friendly because they list the form title within the form which disappears as you start typing, stopping you from hearing the form title after entering text.

  15. The current chat font on the iOS app is very small for the legally blind. Please add dynamic text support or the ability to increase the chat font size.

  16. There is already a new tag for Vegan, which is awesome! However, there is quite a difference between being Vegan and Vegetarian (which I am finding out more and more). Vegetarian is more diet-based but Veganism is also more of a way of life or ideology. I use the Vegan tag now despite the fact I'm vegetarian. It would be great to have a separate tag! Thanks, twitch! :)

  17. Any possible talks about adding a role above Mod, but below caster? So that way if the caster is streaming and they want to grant someone access to vip or mod, The role below caster has access to doing so?

  19. Buongiorno

    Vi scrivo per chiedervi se è possibile inserire i sottotitoli generati automaticamente alle live e ai video riprodotti sulla Vostra (bellissima) piattaforma?
    Se ancora non esistesse tale opzione, sarà possibile in un futuro averla?
    Sono un ragazzo sordo impiantato con difficoltà uditive e per questo non comprendo mai a pieno i discorsi effettuati. Mentre le Live della piattaforma Facebook hanno già da tempo questa opzione, ma sarebbe bellissimo averla anche su una piattaforma veramente TOP come la vostra!
    Cordiali saluti
    Malinverno Matteo

  20. for people with photosensitive your seizure warning is pointless if streams play automatically on almost every page, a person can't even navigate to it with out taking a risk. Auto play of random streams increases the risk and make navigating the site a minefield, if it could be turned off people would be able to take their safety into their own hand and make choice about what they are able to watch.
