--- Comment #2 from Addison Phillips <addison@lab126.com> ---
I think the text pointed to in Comment 1 is correct and meets the needs. There
remain two issues here, one small and one large.

The larger issue is covered nicely by bug 28266, so let's use this bug to focus
on the smaller issue of the example:

The example provided in 1.3 could be modified to at least acknowledge the
linkage between text direction and the choice of left or right sides. While it
is an example, reading it gives the distinct impression of start == left,
particularly since the example says:

--
The first cue has its cue box left aligned at the 10% mark of the video
viewport width and the text is left aligned within that box - probably
underneath a speaker on the left of the video image.
--

If you wanted to ensure that the text was underneath the speaker on the left
side, one would use the "left" keyword rather than "start". If the subtitles
appeared translated into Arabic, for example, the "start" would be on the right
side and no longer underneath the character.

I would suggest rephrasing as something like:

--
The first cue has its cue box "start" (in this case left) aligned at the 10%
mark of the video viewport width with the text left aligned within that box -
possibly underneath a speaker on the left of the video image.
