Twitch to help out with live captions...

Twitch is helping out deaf and hard of hearing viewers catch what’s happening during its live broadcasts with new closed captions included into the videos. And it isn’t even using speech-to-text software to possibly butcher sentences. 

Twitch has hired professional stenographers to type out the captions on the fly for things like their weekly show that airs every Friday, TwitchCon 2016 events, and Kappa Theater panels.

If you’re a content creator on Twitch, you won’t have access to the professionals but you can provide captioned content.
