I have not been able to find an answer to this simple question - how to press in uppercase character using Dragon NaturallySpeaking

I know how to start a word by capitalising the first letter of the word. But I cannot figure out how to make Dragon NaturallySpeaking press a single uppercase character. For example, "press b" will press lowercase b and I have tried with "press uppercase b", or "all caps on press uppercase b".

The links that I get after an Internet search are all referring to how to make the first letter of the word uppercase. There must be a simple answer to this and I hope someone can provide it.

Think in simple keyboard terms.

As an example:

press shift b
press control b
press alt b 
press control shift b

etc.

You almost had it with Press uppercase dTry saying press cap d to type D. Unfortunately, letters like d e g c b sound similar so if you know your phonetic alphabet, you can appreciate bulletproof results. Example: Try dictating press cap delta to type D.

There may be other options. You can apply capitalization after dictating something. If I want to capitalize the last word in the previous sentence, say:

"select something"

Pause for a fraction of a second and say:

"all caps that"

Another method is to say:

"all caps on"

The next thing to say will be in capital letters. When you're done, say:

"all caps off"

Don't worry. It took me a while to realise the "keyboard approach", so to speak, as I had been led to think in "command terms" at first, like anyone else obviously.

When getting started with dictation software, I bet that most people find that voice input is not nearly as intuitive as they might have first believed. There are so many details to learn and to practice before "voice-centric" methods become second nature!

You have already received a number of viable options, but let me offer yet another. You can say "Type" instead of "Press" and "capital" instead of "cap" (whatever is easier for you to remember). For example, "type capital echo" and "type capital e" both produce a capital E.
