    With more and more people coming to sites like Twitch to view gaming, you are also attracting individuals who might not be able to enjoy the full experience. Lately, I have been encountering more and more deaf individuals that are moving FROM Twitch to YOUTUBE because there aren't closed/open captions. I know this is an extension that the streamers have to install and enable, but this is not consistent across the board. Youtube incorporates this in every video and has been successful to them. Whether this feature is needed by every viewer or not, this is something that is somewhat discriminatory towards individuals hard of hearing and incorporating this into every page could make your platform more appealing towards individuals who cannot HEAR the streamer.
