Hopefully WebVTT would work with it, if not I would file bug reports 
with the ePub viewer, WebVTT is fairly established now as the standard 
way to include captions / subtitles / chapters with HTML5 media and ePub 
software should support it.

It's with the HTML5 track element.

WebVTT is very similar to SRT but has some noticeable differences.
