For people who are hard of hearing but can hear, what media player do 
they use for on their PCs for audios that have a captions track?

Both the MPEG-4 and Matroska containers support timed captions.

I know VLC shows the captions track *if* a visualizer is enabled, and I 
have heard that foobar2000 also will *if* a lyrics plugin is installed 
and the captions track is done in SRT. But are those what are used by 
the community that can hear but still benefits from timed captions?

Thank you, I hope since it's not a web thing exactly, it isn't seen as 
off-topic.
