Mute the Team software, NOT the microphone hardware.
When I am on Teams and mute the Teams microphone icon, it mutes my physical microphone as well (turns on /off the mute button on my physical microphone). I use voice recognition software and I need to control the physical microphone on/off to dictate notes during the meeting without my dictation disturbing people on Teams. If I unmute the physical microphone on then it turns the Teams microphone icon on as well and everyone hears me dictating. This needs to be independent so that I can use my headset microphone for both softwares by muting the software and not the hardware.
cannot believe this was missed prior to going live, large proportion of users are losing out on their ability to be effective
