Take it the Genius bar, and see what they say. Could be a software setting.
It's worth a shot. Just don't have them do any 'repairs' on it, because like I said, it's probably software-side. They'll probably tell you how to fix it too (for free).

But see if these work first:
Go to System Preferences > Keyboard
Then see if any settings are amiss. Try going to input tab, and then removing, and re-adding in your keyboard layout of choice.

Get out of that, and then go back to Preferences, then go to language.
Remove and add english (or whatever language) again.

Hope that helps. But if not, go to Apple anyways and see what they can do.

Or you could try remapping your T key to always display "t"...

Sorry but I'm calling this as BS and a troll thread. If every 't' you type is capitalized, then why is the 't' in 'computer' in lowercase? Next.
Actually, he told that:

The leTTer T on my keyboard is always on caps lock!! Unless The word auTocorrecTs.
Probably his "compuTer" word auto-corrected into "computer". Also, auto-corrected: "absolutely", "lot"...
Unless we will have more evidence, we cannot declare this person as a troll

----------

And why is the "H" often capitalised after a T, but not always?
"This", "The", "There" have been autocorrected, while the longer words (e.g. "wiTHouT") have not

Though, the H part still stands. It could be legitimate, but it's rather bizarre. In either case, just have him go to the store. If he's a troll, then he probably won't be reading this anyways.

Go to System Preferences / Keyboard / Input Sources and try picking a different keyboard and see what happens. Some keys will not work right if you choose a German keyboard when your computer doesn't have a German keyboard, but check whether the T problem is still there. If the T problem persists then you have some _really_ strange hardware problem. Take it to an Apple Store.

If the T problem goes away but comes back with your normal keyboard settings, some joker with access to your computer might have modified a keyboard file. Again, take it to an Apple Store.

Lol you seem to have mistyped a few of your "errors". Lots of H's are capitalised next to Ts ;)
