Re: a few notes about the latest FlickType engine
Hi Kosta,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Apologies for the late reply, things have been crazy for me lately.
I am using VoiceOver with Flicktype, and I’ve seen the accuracy issue with VoiceOver on. I have no vision at all, so I can’t really test without Voiceover unfortunately haha :) An example of this though is if I type the word "cookie" the first three suggestions I get are "follow" "Sophie" and "Rookie", all of which are fairly far from the finger position of "c" "o" "o" "k" etc It’s almost like Flicktype can’t figure out where on the screen in relationship to itself that I’m typing..
I pretty much only use half screen mode now :) it’s awesome. But I can try and confirm in the next few days if it’s happening in full screen or not.
Another thing that I’ve noticed with punctuation, which may also only be a half-screen issue, is that in certain places and cases, it almost seems random, though I’ve seen it most in the GroupMe app, function, and anything I type after it will duplicate itself with every swipe. So if I type "hi" then swipe right for an emoji, it will write "hi." just fine. But when I swipe up to change to, let’s say a :), it will write "hi.." and with each subsequent swipe, will double the last function. So if it starts writing "hi.." then it will be "…." and then "…….." etc. This will also happen with characters, so if I write "hi" then swipe right and go through suggestions, with each suggestion it adds imaginary letters to what I typed making longer and longer word suggestions lol.
This whole thing is very rare though, so hard to replicate it.
And that weird thing that happens after a new line is inserted is still happening too. Just FYI.
I know some of this likely isn’t that helpful because it’s so vague; I’m sorry I don’t have more details to share, but I’ll try and document more when things happen. I write quite a bit of code myself, and I hate when I can’t replicate a bug that’s reported to me because of lack of information.
Thanks so much,
