HandBrake forced subtitles function enables you to watch subtitles of some sections in a language different from the audio track only after enabling handBrake forced subtitles. To be frankly, adding HandBrake embed subtitles, you can turn subtitles on or off as you wish. Considering this aspect, I prefer to add HandBrake soft subtitle.
