Tips for capitalising by voice
Dragon will capitalise some words automatically, including proper nouns, after a full stop or question mark and also after "New paragraph" (but not generally after "New line").
There are different ways to capitalise text:
Method 1 - To capitalise the next word that you dictate say "Cap <word>". For example, saying "Cap elephant" will produce 'Elephant'. For upper case say "All caps elephant" to produce 'ELEPHANT'.
Method 2 - Use to capitalise your last phrase or selected text
Dictate a phrase then say "Cap that" (for Title case) or "All caps That" (for upper case). Dragon will apply the capitalisation back to your last pause, i.e. your last phrase. These commands can also be used to format selected text.
Method 3 - Use to capitalise text that you already have in your document (assuming the text is in view)
Note that this method will work for title case only, not for upper case.
Say "Capitalise word/s" or "Capitalise word/s to word/s" (for a string of text). For example, to capitalise the phrase above 'assuming the text is in view' I could say "Capitalise assuming the text is in view".
To capitalise a long phrase you can say eg "Capitalise assuming to view". You could think of the generic command as "Capitalise <Start to Finish>".
If there is more than one instance of the text, Dragon will number each instance. You can then say "Choose 2" etc or "Choose all".
