Undub mod for Spyro Reignited Trilogy to undub the audio from selected language, allowing playing the game with different language dubbing and text.

It doesn't make a lot of sense to me to see a game with subtitles set to n/a for when all of the dialogue is text-based.
Say I'm hearing impaired or I want to play a game at work but remain aware of the real world around me, or have any other reason to not want to hear any dialogue - I may use the wiki to look for games that have subtitles. If we had a list for such games, I would naturally sort to highlight the ones set to true, not something as obscure as n/a. You may convince me otherwise, but the real question is whether it would be as apparent to a newcomer.
Besides, by dictionary definition subtitles do not have to accompany any voiced dialogue. One of the two Merriam-Webster definitions for subtitle is
While currently playing Prey I noticed that somebody marked Closed Captions for this game as true. And while it does offer subtitles for all dialogues, it only partially offers them for sound effects. For example, the sound of some of the robotic devices gets described if you are near them, but things like shooting, breaking glass, explosions or alien noises do not.
The editing guide mentions "Text accompanied with all audio in-game." so in this case it should probable be false then, right?
However, I've checked a couple of pages which makes me unsure about the setting in general. Dragon Age Origins has it enabled and while it is heavily text based, things like sounds (or combat chatter IIRC) has no subtitles. Same goes with other classical RPGs.
Now looking at some Bluray movies with SDH subtitles, not every noise necessarily gets described - at least not in dramatic/action scenes.
So I think we need some better clarification as to when CC should be true, false or N/A. Especially with the different genres in mind (e.g. adventure games). I know this is generally a rare feature but it seems even the Steam store often lists it for games which only feature normal subtitles.
After a petition a few weeks ago Valve has apparently updated Steam pages to include more comprehensive language information. For examples see the Half-Life 2 and Team Fortress 2 pages.
While this is helpful, it's unfortunately currently inaccurate. For example, Half-Life 2 definitely has subtitle support but it isn't listed on its Steam page. For now at least, please confirm in the game itself whether or not a game supports subtitles, do not use the Steam page.
I also wanted to suggest updating our Audio Settings template to support these new additions. Specifically what languages these games support. Thoughts?
