    I'm hard of hearing, and have ripped a few of my DVDs with VOB subtitles using handbrake.

    I can't see where to turn the subtitles on, though? There doesn't appear to be an option. Given Apple's rigorous attention to detail I thought they might have allowed greater accessibility for content for those that need it.

    The speaker facing backwards doesn't help. We can't hear anything, but everyone else in the room can!

    Back on topic, guess the only option is to permanently render/embed subtitles into the movie rather than have them as a 'floating' option.

    I have a number of foreign DVDs and box set collections. I always rip them and "burn-in" subtitles on Handbrake. Other than that there's a "closed caption" toggle on the Video setup. Not having a subtitled video on my iPad at the moment I can't tell you if it works.
