This could be tricky because for a given media element:
- There can be multiple languages conveyed by different WebVTT `<tracks>`/cue sheets.
- The browser may not know what languages are conveyed by text tracks inside the media resource until playback begins.
- We don't know what language the user will choose for captions, and can change it during playback.

Given the uncertainty I'm not sure the browser should hide a playback device based on lack of a specific font - we can't predict whether that will be relevant to playback or not.

@avayvod @mounirlamouri Any thoughts?
