Forum Question: The auto-capitalization in wireless keyboard

I have an ipad and also a wireless keyboard, I have a problem with the auto-capitalization when using the wireless keybpard for writing in ( pages) and (keynote), I have tried different solutions but I could not solve the problem.
I have been watching the MacMost videos since I have bought my Mac and I thought that I may find a solution from your side to the wireless keyboard problem

    What problem, exactly, are you having? Can you describe what is happening and how it differs from what you expect?

      Normally when start typing in (pages) or (keynote) the first letter in the sentence will be capitalized automatically but when I use the wireless keyboard this thing does not happen, the first letter does not capitalized.

        Interesting. I guess it recognizes that you are using a real keyboard and so don’t need this kind of assistance.

          Thank you very much for your fast replay but, could you please give me some more details about the auto-capitalization when using the wireless keyboard.

            Not sure what details you are looking for. I’m just suggesting that maybe you only get auto-capitalization when using the on-screen keyboard. But look around in your settings to see if you can modify the behavior. Maybe you can. Not sure.

    The problem i am having is distinguishing the capitol I and the lower case l.
    How can you tell the difference,has you can see they are both identical.
    When you click on Submit Comment,then they change.
    Do you use a programme for this Gary.

      I don’t use anything special for this. Not sure why it makes a difference when typing or reading. When typing you know which one you press, and when reading it only matters that you understand the word.

    Yes it does make a difference,because they are both identical,and you can`t tell one from the other. The reason i want to know,because it`s used in passwords,and in case numbers,or the model number of your iMac. They change has i said when i click on the Submit Comment. If you notice in my post up above the capitol I is crossed at the top and bottom. Where has the lower case l is just a straight line. It occurs in the letter oO or the number 0. Some sites or letters,and documents have an angle line through the number 0 to tell it apart from the letter Oo. I am still confused? now i am going to click on Submit Comment then you can tell the difference Gary

      Oh, I see. For passwords. Well, then the solution is to simply not use any of those characters in your passwords. Or, if you do, make sure you remember which one it is.

    I am glad you understood this problem,but it also works the other way round.
    Example – I get a link to a website,and then it says type the codeword in say AccIl6A93 this is when i can not tell if it`s a capitol I or a lower case l,and now when i click on your Submit Comment then i can see the difference. Your site it seems to automatically adjust it. I know you have mentioned it a lot.It must be hard for you to try to understand people from just a post. If you were standing behind me you would sort it out in minutes. It`s a good job you have video tutorials has well. Now it`s back to the Keyboard problem. Thanks Gary
