Hello; give the following a try;

Turn on / off auto capitalization in Outlook 2010 / 2013 / 2016,

Here we will guide you to turn on or off the auto capitalization feature of two initial capitals, capital the first letter of sentences, name of days, and more.

Step 1: Choose the File > Options.

Step 2: Choose the Mail in the left bar.

Step 3: Choose the Spelling and Autocorrect button in the Compose messages section.

Step 4: In the Editor Options dialog box, choose the AutoCorrect Options button.

Step 5: Choose the AutoCorrect tab firstly in the AutoCorrect: English (United States) dialog box, and then:

To turn off correcting two initial capitals, please uncheck the Correct Two Initial Capitals option;

1. To turn off auto capitalizing the first letter of each sentence, please uncheck the Capitalize first letter of sentences option.

I have a new computer, using JAWS 18, Windows 7.
I recently switched from using to Outlook 2016.
I'm encountering a new problem:

When I'm typing a report and want to begin a new line with a5, for example, Outlook is automatically capitalizing the a. How do I stop this from happening?
Any help will be appreciated.
