auto capitalise in gmail and google doc

i use windows 10 21h2, latest google chrome and nvda 2021.2. What should I do to auto capitalise first letter of the first word of any line on gmail and google doc?


 

Easily found with a basic web search"auto capitalize Google docs":

How to Stop Automatically Capitalizing Words in Google Docs
(if you want to turn it on, then simply check instead of uncheck)

and "auto captalize gmail," where all the returned items pretty much say this:

Gmail does not have auto-correct or even auto spell-check (only manual). While browsers have auto spell-check, they do not have auto-correct. So you’l need to find some browser extension or other utility to do that sort of auto-correction when composing messages.

Thank you for posting this question in the Chat Subgroup, as that's precisely where it belongs and sets a good example!

Thank you. I have checked preference of google doc. There is no such check box to turn on auto capitalise.

Oh, yes there is, and it is a checkbox with precisely the phrasing noted in those instructions.  First option in the General tab of preferences, accessed precisely as described in the instructions.

In that very same Tools Menu, immediately beneath the Preferences option and the last item in the menu, is Accessibility Settings, and the very first Accessibility Setting is a checkbox for Turn on screen reader support, which, if activated, allows for the selection and deselection of Braille Support and Collaboration Support.  It may have other effects of which I am not aware, as I do not use Google Docs.

A web search on "Using google docs with a screen reader" turns up hundreds of documents on same, a very great many of the ones near the top of the results from Google, but there are others from third parties.  Something any screen reader user needs to do before using any unfamiliar software, and particularly something produced by Google or Microsoft, is to do a web search on, "Using {insert thing here} with a screen reader."  Both of these companies produce extensive documentation on how to use virtually any software they distribute in conjunction with a screen reader, and most of them "get to the guts" of any preliminary setup you may need to do to make use with a screen reader easier right up front.
