Steps to reproduce

I opened an identical issue last week and was told that it was fixed in subsequent version of IE10/Edge, and the issues was closed. I’ve now upgraded to the versions below, and the problem persists. It’s clearly not fixed:
Microsoft Edge 25.10586.0.0
Microsoft EdgeHTML 13.10586
Microsoft Windows Version 1511 (OS Build 10586.589
Closed captions / subtitles via the <track> element on a <video> element do not work cross domain. We are using the <track> element. The files on the other origin return the proper Access-Control headers.
How other browsers handle it:
All other browsers on all platforms seem to display captions with no problems. This includes Mac/Safari, iOS/MobileSafari, Mac/PC/Chrome/Firefox…
To reproduce:
Point your favorite browser at: https://util01.myodp.org/test/ie-cc-video-test.html
Watch captions work everywhere except Edge (and IE).
This is a serious accessibility issue, captioning (some) web video is required by the FCC and this should work with html5 coding.
