My settings are: synth set to beep if capital letter, speak typed characters off, speak typed words on.
This does not beep when typing CAPITAL LETTERS, either with capslock on or when using shift with caps lock off. Using shift with caps lock on does produce a beep. In other words, the synthesizer setting that indicates capital letters only works when typing if Speak typed characters is on.
I'm using Windows 10 2004 and NVDA 2020.2
I just tested this and it beeps when speak typed characters is on or off.
It does it when speak words is on or off as well, so the screen-reader could
be silent and it would still beep.

It should still beep when typing a lowercase letter with caps lock on - so
if you have double pressed the caps lock key and caps lock is on. If you
then press SHIFT and type a letter (which will come out lowercase) NVDA will
In NVDA'S speech settings there is an option "Beep for capitals". With that
on whenever you arrow to a capital or type a capital letter, NVDA will beep,
however it only does this when reading the letter, so it only reads when
typing, if speak typed characters is enabled.

To add to my last note, although I have the box checked in the keyboard
settings to let me know if capital keys are being typed when I want lower
case, that’s not working. I’ve got it set to say words as I type them, so
perhaps that is the problem? I really don’t need to hear each character.
