The whole discourse about all-caps is wild. Screen readers today actually detect and don't treat all-caps as giant acronyms any more, it was raised as a big problem in the early days of forum use by screen reader users, soooo yeah. If your screen reader treats all caps like this, what's its name? So I can find the documented feature to fix it for you?


If you want to argue that there's an accessibility argument for sighted or partly-sighted people reading all-caps slower (well, yes, they do), there are also tools to deal with that. Scripts that will fix it. The same sorts of accommodations that are available for screen reader users. You can shape your internet experience and filter it so the stuff you can't deal with doesn't happen.
