The Live captions feature enables live subtitles in Microsoft Teams, helping all meeting participants to interact better, in a more accessible way. Live captions automatically create real-time subtitles based on the spoken words of the meeting participants. The text appears in real time.
With the newly introduced toggle for turn on/off profanity filtering in live captions in Teams meetings, users are now able to control whether they want to continue to leverage the profanity filtering capability provided out of the box, or if they want to see every word as-is.
Users now have a new option to turn off the profanity filtering and be able to see the captions as is. They can control this option via Settings in Teams > Captions and transcripts > Filter profane words in meeting captions.
To turn live captions on, join a meeting or start a call. Select the More icon in the meeting toolbar > Language and speech > Turn on live captions. To change the spoken language, click the three dots in the live captions pane at the bottom of the screen.
