Thank you very much Quentin. I will turn on “say caps.”

I found the same thing.  I've filed a bug on our system (https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/7514 for anyone interested).

 

In the meantime, the workarounds I found were:

 

- It seems to affect Microsoft OneCore and SAPI 5 voices.  eSpeak at least seems to work fine for me.  I'm not sure about other synthesizers.  I just re-read your message though and you said eSpeak isn't working for you.

 

- In the Voice settings dialog - press NVDA+control+v, I found that if you set "Say cap before capitals", then it reads "cap" before any capital, but it also adjusts the pitch as per the pitch change setting above that.

- Also in the Voice settings dialog, there is a "beep for capitals" option which does what it claims (although it doesn't "fix" the pitch).

 

Regards

 

Quentin.

Hi all,

I am trying to get a student’s NVD to change pitch when she types a capital letter.  I have set the pitch change all the way up to 100 and still there is no change.  Of course I really don’t want the change  at 100.  I just kept trying different pitches.  I have tried the pitch change with Neo speech kate, and Paul, eloquence

And the default Easy speak.

None make the pitch change when capitalizing.  Can some one help?

Thanks in advance.
