   * Correct Two Initial Capitals


This feature works to fix the second letter to lowercase when you type a word with the first and second capital letters. For example "WHEN" if you press the spacebar will become "When" (the letter E which is in the second position in the word "KEtika" is replaced with a lowercase letter e)

   * Capitalize first letter of sentences




If the Capitalize first letter of sentences feature is activated (checked), then it will function to change the first letter in a sentence to capital letters. For example, when you type "car" at the beginning of a sentence (lowercase m), then after pressing the space key, the text will change to "car" (upper case m).
