Hi, Marilyn. To rid yourself of unwanted capitalization,


1. Open Microsoft Word.

2. Press ALT followed by the letters F, then T.

3. Arrow down to Proofing.

4. Press SPACE on the AutoCorrect Options button.

5. Uncheck any options related to capitalization which you do not want to occur automatically.

6. TAB to OK, and press ENTER.

7. The options you uncheck should no longer be capitalized automatically.

Hello all,


Out of the blue I’m now getting the comment “auto correct” every time my cursor goes to a new line and the first letter of that word is automatically capitalized. How do I get rid of this action? I recently updated Windows and Jaws on my desktop.  Step by step will be much appreciated. Many thanks.

And you’re also using some version of MS Word? In that case, highlight the word or passage you wish to underline, then press control-u. JAWS will announce something like, “Underline.”

One caveat that will be obvious to people with sight but not those without: if you underline, italicize or bold something and then continue typing right away, the newly typed text will also be underlined, etc. What I do to prevent this from happening is to add a comma after the text I’m about to underline. When I’ve completed the underlining, I add a space after the comma, then delete the comma, which won’t have been underlined. Of course, if you want a comma there anyway, all the better.
