On the other Hand there was over heated Diskussion in earlier time of GNOME
already.
Topic was whether to embedd something which belongs to Google and then
GNOME would be not free like before.

Here is Deaf too.
Is speech-cognition not patented?
I think cognition of speech in audio systems is not
open source (yet). (when I am not wrong.)
Where would you need subtitles especially?

Like if you play a video not in a browser, or a podcast with audio and subtitles need to be displayed.
Now if there are apps part of the gnome desktop that does video or audio, then gnome would need to support caption or subtitles within the gnome desktop. Now apps that run on top of gnome would need to support the subtitles like Firefox, VLC or any app that does audio or video.
