[Bug 16005] Media elements: I would suggest that Subtitle support be implemented for Audio Media elements for the hearing impaired users. It should also include an api that would allow custom presentation of the subtitles.

You can already use the track element for audio elements, but you'd have to put
the audio file in a <video> element to get a visual display. Otherwise the Web
developer has to create the visual display through JavaScript.

BTW: Transcripts are often more useful than captions for audio files, since
they don't require the hearing-impaired person to go along the pace of the
audio file but can determine their own pace of reading.
