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?


So you know, JAWS' default (the most popular screen reader software I know about) is to raise the pitch of the words 20% to acknowledge that the word is in all caps. That's configurable at runtime via keyboard shortcuts, too. Most of the people talking about this have never worked with accessibility software and it shows.
