Twitch Chat Readability

As part of the Research Methods class in the MSHCI program at Georgia Tech, my team researched the problem space of easing Twitch chat’s reading comprehension for viewers. We conducted extensive research regarding the current functionalities of the Twitch chat and users pain points. Previous studies on this issue showed that the chat loses usefulness for users that can’t understand the context of the message. As a result viewers disengage from the chat community. Based on these findings, we identified opportunities to explore more of these gaps.

This video presentation describes our projects findings and design implications.
