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

Hi

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

 

Cheers

That's very interesting and further raises the question of what is

causing the problem.
