"Languages support has been expanded to include Danish, English (Ireland), French (Canada), Korean, Portuguese (Portugal)," Microsoft said in a blogpost.
The tech giant also fixed several bugs and issues with the update.
In the new build, it fixed an issue where the touch keyboard didn't correctly recognise a hardware keyboard available in some cases, as well an issue that was causing live captions to crash on the first launch due to an issue impacting registry data retrieval.
It also fixed the issue causing live captions' Add a language menu icon and label to overlap.
Moreover, the company has also added features to the enhanced speech recognition language files to improve performance and provide out-of-language filtering meant to limit incorrect captions for speech not in the caption language.
