Microsoft Windows comes with the Toggle Keys feature, which refers to the Caps Lock key, the Num Lock key, and the Scroll Lock key. When Toggle Keys are enabled, you will hear a tone when you press any of these three keys. It helps us to know whether the keys are turned on or off.
Many people have a habit of typing by looking at the keyboard instead of looking at the screen. It is a common problem among all of us, where caps lock is accidentally pressed. When you’re busy typing, you might accidentally hit one of the lock keys, resulting in retyping again.
However, Microsoft designed this feature specifically for people who have vision impairment or cognitive disabilities.
