Thank you, will try that out. That should make spotting misplaced capital 
letters a lot easier.

Hello,
For cap announcement, you can set to play sound, which will be less
irritating.
To do that, Go to JAWS > Utility Menu > configuration manager > Set Options
Menu > Speech and Sound Manager > Edit Current Scheme > Misc Tab Page, there
in the list select cap and then tab to the set of radio choices and select
"Play Sound". The next button will allow you to select WAVE file to be
played.

I suggest to create a new sound scheme to be used for proof reading, you can
customize many options by using this method.

Thanks
Mukesh

Hi Pranav and all,

As a translator, I am expected to proofread translated documents all the
time. While the spellcheck feature of Word tracks down most of the spelling
errors and spacing inconsistencies, the biggest difficulty I encounter when
proofreading with the help of a screen reader relates to tracking down
inappropriate/inadvertent  capitalisation. Turning on Jaws' capitalisation
announcement feature can solve the problem, but this can be grating on the
ears. I am yet to find a speech-based solution to this problem.

Hi all,

What techniques do you use to proof read text? Do you use audio or Braille?
I am in a situation where I need to produce perfect text. I cannot afford
even a single error. I use a screen reader namely Jaws for Windows. I do
most of my writing in Microsoft Word so use the spelling and grammar checker
that comes with Microsoft Office. I also review my documents using speech
but I am liable to miss things especially if two words sound alike.
