Re: NVDA announcing Capital letters

Yes, that’s what I did.


If you send an upper case A to NVDA and capitals is turned off, it gets an upper case A.


Synths interpret this differently, and Vocalizer will tell you it is a capital.


All the best

Can speech viewer be used to check what is being sent to the synthesizer?
