Captions that are in VTT file do not always appear in player

When testing content that leverages VTT captions, I found that all captions with styling align:end position:90% are hidden on this video. I believe they are out of viewport.

Unfortunately we have no any affect on what is in the VTT. So we can not re-parse it on client side.
Roku Video component have some fields which customize the caption but neither of them related to position or alignment.

There was one videoPlayer component in the far past which supported an ability to manipulate caption text, but that component is deprecated.

Is there a solution via development, or do all VTT files need to be created without alignment and position settings?

Bump. We have the same issue with VTT subtitles.
