Hi All,
Is there any quick way of scanning something with Jaws to check the 
capitalization and make sure it is correct?  I work as a medical 
transcriptionist and the first letter of every sentence is supposed to be 
automatically capitalized for us but sometimes it doesn't happen for some 
reason, and also sometimes words will get capitalized that I don't want 

Right now the only way that I'm able to check this is to read the whole 
report after I finish typing it, but some of these reports are rather long 
and it takes away from my work time having to read everything when the only 
thing that is usually wrong are either missing capitals where there should 
be one or occasionally a capitalized letter that shouldn't be capitalized.

Thanks in advance for any help on this.
