Hi,

 

Whilst I can see the value for many (perhaps most) users in automatically filtering out expletives, I would like to be able to turn this feature off. I am involved in investigatory interviews where the exact wording is crucial. For example, if there is an allegation that one employee has called another a "BLANK BLANK", I really need to be able to see the exact words. Some expletives have racial overtones, others gender based ones etc. 

 

Is there anyway I can stop Streams from censoring my vtt file in this way?

@DavidJacksonTKC - No there isn't a way you can change this behavior, it's the built in and only way that Stream is configured to generate transcripts, sorry.
