Subject: JAWS 2022 Spelling All Caps Words



I am running JAWS 2022 version 2022.2202.38.400. Of late, I am noticing that when JAWS encounters a word that is written in all caps, with the capital indicator setting set to indicate capitalization for characters and words, JAWS will spell the word out letter by letter instead of saying the word as it did in JAWS 2021. For me, this is a problem because, on my system, I use a sound to indicate capitalization, and if I am reading a document, the capitalization sounds are blended in with the text. Hence, having an all caps word spelled is a problem. Is this something over which I might have some control over in a hitherto unknown JAWS setting?


Has anyone else noticed this behavior?


Thank you kindly.


Best wishes,


Curtis Chong
