What is the Editing Auto-Capitalize Feature?

Answer / Solution

Editing Auto-Capitalize Feature Explained

Overview:

The InfraWare 360 platform has an added Editing Auto-Capitalization feature geared specifically for making transcription and editing First Draft Jobs, as well as QA jobs easier.  This is a User Setting available in the ITC (F10). 

This feature includes three components:

  • Punctuation Insertion & Removal Auto-Capitalization (.!?)
  • Colon Insertion and Removal
  • Comma and Semicolon Insertion

Punctuation Insertion and Removal

While editing in the ITC Editor, when inserting or removing periods, exclamation points, or question marks, the ITC editor will attempt to set the trailing word’s case and spacing automatically.  This is geared toward improving the editing experience with First Draft results. 

For example, if you insert a period after ‘him’ in the phrase “… is for him today …", then the ITC would automatically change the phrase to “… is for him. Today …”. 

Removing a period from between two words will change undo the capitalization of the 2nd word. This makes it easier to remove an incorrect period from a document.

The editing auto-capitalize feature will work no matter which side of the space you put the period. For instance, if you insert a period between ‘him’ and ‘today’ like this: “…is for him .today...” The ITC will automatically fix this to be “….is for him. Today…” This formatting change makes it much easier to insert a period by using the ctrl + left and ctrl + right keystrokes (which are used a lot in editing) because they will always position the cursor at the start of a word.

Colon Insertion and Removal

While editing and transcribing in the ITC Editor, when inserting or removing colons, the ITC Editor will attempt to set the trailing word spacing automatically.  This is geared toward improving the editing experience with First Draft results. 

For example, if you insert a colon after ‘him’ in the phrase “… is for him today …“, then the ITC would automatically change the phrase to “… is for him:  today …”. 

Removing a colon from between two words will remove the extra space before the next word.  This makes it easier to remove an incorrect colon from a document.

The editing auto-capitalize feature will work no matter which side of the space you put the colon. For instance, if you insert a colon between ‘him’ and ‘today’ like this: “…is for him :today...” The ITC will automatically fix this to be “….is for him: today…” This formatting change makes it much easier to insert a period by using the ctrl + left and ctrl + right keystrokes (which are used a lot in editing) because they will always position the cursor at the start of a word.

Comma and Semicolon Insertion

While editing in the ITC Editor, when inserting or removing commas, if the comma or semicolon is inserted in front of a word the ITC Editor will attempt to move it automatically so it is after the previous word.  This is geared toward improving the editing experience with First Draft results. 

For example, if you navigate to a word using Ctrl + left or right keystrokes, this puts your cursor location at the beginning of a word.  If you were to insert a comma in front of ‘for’ in the phrase “… though for her, today …“, then the ITC would automatically change the phrase to “… though, for her, today …“ If you were to insert a semicolon in front of ‘for’ in the phrase “… though for her, today …“, then the ITC would automatically change the phrase to “… though; for her, today …“
