Thanks for the suggestion.  I would like a jaws solution but until then I can 
work with your suggestion.  It will definitely work.

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.

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.
