I am using Google Translate to get my child to play with letters. He thinks it is interesting to write a letter or a word and push "listen". The problem is that I always use CAPS lock, so he does not have to learn the lower-case letters, however, if I write something in the textbox with upper case letters and push "listen", this causes the voice to spell the letters, not read them. How can I solve that we can write upper-case letters, but still have Google Translate read the text, not spell it.

I am Norwegian, so I am not interested in alternatives, that does not support Norwegian pronunciation.

Get something like this keyboard with lower case letters printed on the keys so you don't have the problem of the mis-match between what he presses and what he sees on the screen. I don't know whether there is a Norwegian version of this or not.

  • This is a decent solution to the problem. I am, though, expecting to teach him the upper case letters first, as is customary. I will, however consider your solution if I cannot find one where he will work with upper case letters
