Anybody remember back in the early '80s: David Halliday produced
the Braille Edit and BEX which were word processing programs for
the Apple 2 series computer? He made the pitch rise if the first
letter of a word was capitalized; and rise even higher if the
whole word was capitalized. One could get used to that and it
wouldn't slow down reading like saying "cap" before capital
letters. It was quite innovative for those years.

This does exist. It's in settings under speech. In the synth area
are choices of pitch change for caps or "say cap" If say cap is
whenever you arrow across a capital letter, it will say the word
before the letter. I think this is what you want.

Is there a way to cause NVDA to announce capitalization of words
when reading by line, sentence, or paragraph?
