My wife hates subtitles and never watches them if I'm not in the room. However, I'm becoming very hard of hearing and watch subtitles whenever possible. So, it's important to me to be able to turn on and off subtitles. If I rip a DVD or Blue-Ray using MakeMKV and copy the raw MKV to my Plex server, no problem. However, I have yet to figure out a way to just "pass through" the subtitles through Handbrake so that they operate in the same way. And, honestly, I guess I'm mostly speaking about closed captioning here, though I don't know that I fully understand the difference.
So, I guess I have three questions:
1) Does Handbrake actually do this, where the output behaves in the same manner as the input (with regards to subtitles/CC) and I just don't know how to properly use the software?
2) If I'm correct and Handbrake *doesn't* have such an option, is it likely to get one in the (near) future?
3) If the answer to #2 is "no", is there another software program that *does* just pass-through closed captioning for those of us with hearing problems?
Steps to reproduce the problem (If Applicable):

Operating system and version (e.g., Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, Windows 10 Creators Update):
