I think you'll find that for small amounts of text, glyph extension isn't likely to be worthwhile.

It's best used for blocks of text where you have some issues with the evenness of text, perhaps irregularities in the typographic color such as rivers.

If your notes or captions are short you may want to just handle it manually, maybe create a style that modifies the original font as a starting point.
