I'm using Dragon Naturally Speaking and was wondering if there is a speech command I can use to capitalize the first letter of each word in the sentence. Thanks.

What version of Dragon NS are you using. I am using Dragon NS Preferred Version 9.1

Have you tried selecting the sentence that you need to capitalise and then saying "Format That Caps"
I have tried that and it works for me.

Hi Agne,

I tried what you said but that did not do it.

Sorry for the delay in coming back to you.
1. Have you tried upgrading to 9.1.
2. When you speak into the microphone and all the words captured correctly.
3. This is an example of of what I suggested
I have tried capitalising the first letter of each on the words in line four but it  did not in this screen. I then copied the above example into a Microsoft Word document and it worked.  Can you try and see whether it works on a word document. I have also  tried copying the example into notepad and it does not work.
Please do let me know what the outcome is.

Hi. Yes, in Word it works, but no where else. So I guess if I need to do this I can do it in word and then copy into whatever I need to copy into. Thanks.

I am glad it has. I know it is a pain to do it in one package and then copy it to another package.   Who knows one day they will be able to sort it out.
Thanks for offering me the points.
 I wish you all the best in the future.
