moderated letters getting capitalized


Rahul Bajaj
 

Hi,

I use JAWS 2022, MS Surface GoTo, Win 11. The problem I am facing is this. Many times, some letters that come immediately after a letter that I want to capitalize also get capitalized, wrongly.

E.g. Let's say I want to write John. I press the insert key twice to capitalize J and then press it again twice to turn caps lock off. But O also gets capitalized. Why could this be happening, and what can I do to fix it?

Why would one use the caps lock to capitalize one letter?  Simply use the shift key.  That's mainly what it's for.

Instead of using the CAPS LOCK KEY to capitalize one letter, use the SHIFT key. In the case of your example, press and hold down the left SHIFT key, then press the letter J, release the SHIFT key then, type o h n, which will appear in lower case. You do this for all pronouns and for the first letter of a sentence and paragraph.

Rahul,

 

As others have suggested, it’s best to use the all caps command only when you want to capitalize an entire word or phrase. However, even when I use the shift to capitalize an initial letter, the next letter sometimes also gets capitalized. The reason? I’m typing too fast. Usually, spellchecker will detect the error, but I now know either to slow down or look for words where I often make the mistake. Most frequent? the word “in.” If I capitalize the “I,” often as not the “n” will be also.

Why don't you just use the shift key if all you want to do is capitalize one letter?

I don't know if he is, but one reason to use capslock could be that a person is one-handed.

If this is the case, a far better option would be Windows own built-in Sticky Keys option that allows modifier keys to be pressed and released but act as though they are still pressed until the next key is entered.  Thus, hitting Shift makes shift stay until you press a letter that follows it to get a capital letter.
