Automated Text Capitalization - How it works?

The capitalization process does not require much thought. The first letter of a sentence is capitalized, as are any proper nouns. And when you're angry, you write in all caps. The capitalization in article titles is more tricky, but typically you capitalize the first letter of the word, and you skip short words and articles. That's all.

Everything is fine as long as you use the capitals you want. Suddenly, capitalization becomes more irritating if you have to press Shift with every first letter or if you write several sentences without realizing you have caps lock on. When you're writing an essay or blog post, it can feel like it takes forever to edit each letter back into the case you want --and it's so easy to miss that stray cApital letter that's in the middle. It is easy to capitalize the first letter of every word by using some below shortcuts.

Pressing caps lock again and again after typing each word may be frustrating. As a result, it also decreases your typing speed. So follow the guide mentioned in this article to capitalize the first letter of each word easily without affecting your typing speed. Also, try to check your current WPM seed.

This article shows you how to use Zapier's Formatter tool to smoothly capitalize text in Word, Google Docs, and other text editors.
