Most of the time you can't. And not with ffmpeg

Now maybe you could train a model to extract letters from frames, I suppose we now have the tools to apply ML to that (but I don't have the skills to do it).

is it possible to display subtitles vertically down rather than horizontally across with ffmpeg?
