I know that if I say "cap word", it will come out as "Word".  how do I do the opposite? I'm looking for "<something> word" so that it comes out as "word" in lowercase.

I have a different but somewhat related question. If my cursor is before the first letter of a word, is there a command that will change the casing of that first character? For example, if my cursor is at the beginning of "word" is there a command I can say like "<something>" that will change that word to "Word"?

 

thanks

"no caps" is the prepending command that will lowercase a normally title cased word.

For example, "no caps Smith" results in "smith", whereas it would normally come out as Smith if you didn't do that.

As to your second question, use the Dragon help by turning on your microphone and saying "search Dragon help for capitalization".

There are Dragon commands for Microsoft Word that incorporate the word "lowercase." But there is no "lowercase <dictation>" command that is analogous to "capitalize <dictation>."

Here are examples of "lowercase" commands for Microsoft Word:

"lowercase that"
"lowercase line"
"lowercase the previous line"
"lowercase next word"
"lowercase previous three words"
"lowercase the previous seven sentences"
"lowercase the next 99 pages"
"lowercase the previous 998 paragraphs"

There are hundreds of related "lowercase" commands listed in the Command Browser. There are also similar "uppercase" commands, and even "lowercase and uppercase" commands - although I have no idea what they do!

We found it odd that Nuance didn't include Lowercase <dictation> when they included capitalize <dictation> so we added Lowercase <dictation> to KnowBrainer 2017 (third party command utility).
