ALL CAPS- Recomendation

Happy Friday!

I just wanted to know if it is ok to use ALL CAPS for some of the content
while designing the website. I know, it is not a good practice to use ALL
CAPS , as it can cause readability issues.

As I have seen that NVDA and VO do read all caps as words instead of
letters, even when they are not *CSS* styled using *text-transform:*

But not sure if all the screen readers read capital letters as words or not?

Looking forward to hearing from you about your thoughts if any screen
reader would cause any issue.
