Rikki Poynter    

Content Creator, Writer & Accessibility Consultant

Rikki Poynter is a disabled (deaf, chronic pain and fatigue) content creator, streamer, writer, accessibility consultant, and public speaker based in Charlotte, North Carolina. Since 2013, she has advocated for better accessibility on YouTube, specifically closed captioning, and has raised awareness about disability. In 2016, she created her campaign #NoMoreCRAPtions to bring the situation to light. She has worked with companies such as VidCon, Apple, Facebook, Firefox, and Google to continue that mission. In July 2018, she won an award from the National Association of the Deaf for her efforts.

Poynter’s efforts do not stop at making videos. She is also a writer for a local paper called Queen City Nerve, and she does consultations for businesses as well as travels the country to various conferences and schools to speak about accessibility and her journey finding her deaf identity. On Twitch, Rikki often talks about whether or not the games she’s playing are accessible.
