Accessibility options

I hadn’t really paid any attention to this until I was talking to someone who was deaf. They are using Chrome because of the options for Live Captions. We don’t seem to have anything like that within Brave. In fact, I don’t even see any accessibility options at all.

Am I missing it hidden somewhere or is this something that Brave can work on for the future?

Check the flag. By default, on chrome the flag must be turned ON.
On brave, the team might have turned if off, due to some privacy harming stuff from live captions.

Yeah I already had found and turned it on on chrome but I can’t find it on Brave. In fact, I don’t see anything regarding accessibility within Brave. So that’s why I’m pointing out that there is room for growth and that I suggest they consider adding features to make the app more accessible to others.

We do have some open issues for accessibility focused features, but yes you are all correct — there is a lot of room to grow here.
