You're right :-) So, correct sentence is:

Only when we are able to dynamically choose the tracks that are enabled 
in a media resource, will we really be able to cater for accessibility 
needs for media resources.

Yes, of course, chronologically in the talk. But this is the teaser. 
What 's why I write it first. I let you discuss the proposal in today's 
telecon and I will submit our proposal tonight based on your comments.
