When typing with key echo off, it's not that easy to tel whether caps lock has accidentally been activated unless you backspace. Some speech systems have a feature where they will beep if you type a shifted letter with caps lock enabled (which generates a lowercase letter). I think this feature would help avoid cases of typing entire sentences and paragraphs in caps, without realizing.

I have reviewed this one.
If core developers are not against the idea, we can apply this.
notes about the code:
I prefer if statement that in beepCapitals to be outside of the function. Check config in event_typedCharacter to avoid unnecessary function call.
You should use boolean type for capsOn variable, shortening code like this:
capsOn=state in [-127](1,)
if capsOn and ch.islower():
I personally am not sure about whether this option will be widely used. User already has a great choice of options to indicate capitals (speak "capital", raise pitch, beep for capitals), and if even one of that is selected, this option becomes redundant. Anyway, this is only my IMHO, let's see what core developers think.
