Hey, thanks for submitting this ticket! I'd love to take this on, and after a bit of research think I have some ideas for how to do it. I'm planning to do this with HTML5 <track> tags but am still trying to figure out what the most accessible way to do it will be. Anyone who has any ideas please lemme know :]

You might also be able to get some use out of popcorn.js ( ) for this sort of thing. Despite the fact that Mozilla can't get their corporate head away from "Internet TV" in this space, popcorn.js is supposed to work with audio media elements as well as video.

hey all, this is a very important ticket and I'm sorry to have claimed the ticket for so long and have stalled work on this, but I grabbed this when I had too much work to do so I haven't been able to get any work done on it. I'm going to give up my claim to the ticket.

Noting that we now have the "subtitles" plugin thanks to GSOC 2016 work by Saksham Agrawal. This plugin provides both video and audio subtitles. I'm not sure that it's currently working as it should, but at least we have it. Closing this ticket.

For reference, the issues with the subtitles plugin are recorded in #5589.
