Step 3: Disable Live Caption

In the Sound & vibration settings, look for an option called “Live Caption.” It is typically located under the “Media” or “Advanced” section. Tap on it to access the Live Caption settings.

Once you’re in the Live Caption settings, you can toggle off the switch to disable Live Caption. The switch might be labeled as “Enable Live Caption” or something similar.
