We believe in a future where all people can come together through live streaming.
We are committed to ensuring that StreamYard works for everyone, including those using assistive technologies like screen readers, magnification, and captions. We have already taken significant steps on our path to becoming WCAG compliant, and we are committed to becoming fully compliant in the future.
StreamYard is one of the only live streaming and remote recording tools that is fully integrated with VoiceOver, so you can command it with your voice. VoiceOver enables users with visual disabilities to control their computer using a rich set of keyboard commands and gestures. Every action you take, from creating a stream, to adding a guest, to going live is integrated with VoiceOver.
We don't have captions built in on StreamYard (yet), but many of the destinations you stream to will add auto-captions. Captions will need to be enabled for each platform your viewers are watching you from.
In addition to enabling captions on the destinations you stream to, your viewers can also enable live captions for Chrome Browser. These captions will work no matter what destination you are streaming to, as long as your viewers are using Chrome.

Is StreamYard WCAG AA Compliant?
Not at this time, but we are actively working towards being WCAG AA compliant (an industry standard on web accessibility).
