Disable 'your microphone is muted' Dialogue
When running events I ingest Teams meetings into a video switcher, then output them to various platforms (teams live, facebook, etc..)
I have multiple laptops running the same Teams call, often needing audio to pass at various times.
While live, a laptop will pick up noise and flag ‘your microphone is muted’
This happens incessantly, several times a minute. I know my mic is muted, it is muted on purpose and the notification is plastered right across my broadcast feed. I cannot simply join the call without audio as I need the output persistently, and the mic needs to be occasionally active.
One minor workaround I have used is to plug in an HDMI capture card to the laptop with no audio going to it, set that as the mic and then unmute throughout. This does not completely address the issue.
I would like to know if there is a way to disable this message, or if a permanent dismissal button can be added to it so that users can at least catch it the first time it happens.

yep, why there is no option to disable these "babyproof" "features" for power-users is beyond me. Some people have been using computers since before sound-cards even existed... and aren't totally ignorant of how computers work.
