Tom, I don't think JAWS provides the solution you seek, which I understand
to be that you want a signal when text appears in lower case. 
If I understand the problem correctly, an idea occurs to me. At the point
where you've just about finished writing a piece of code, or whatever, could
you copy the work into a word processor, select the entire text and click on
the control that reverses lower and upper case text? Then you could use the
JAWS punctuation setting to alert you to any accidental instances of upper
case letters. Change them to small case, then reselect the entire text,
reverse the operation to make the passage all upper case, convert to
non-word processor text and copy back into your original file.

Subject: caps

I am trying to figure out how to better control my caps settings.
In the adjust jaws dialogue there are two settings capitalization ignore and
caps indicate on character / word / line.
These seem to be independent of each other.
Can some one explain how all this works.  I am sure it should be obvious but
I am missing something.
I work mostly on the mainframe where most things are in uppercase so I want
that to sound normal while I need to know if i am inadvertently in lowercase
because that can be a problem.
