I understand how the add to dictionary works. How do I correct a manually entered word?

Kind regards,

Hello all,
 
 I am in love with the new add to dictionary option. Great job!👍🏻
 
 I personally do not use the visual markers on the keyboard so I have several people playing with the keyboard. They are a little less tech savvy to put it nicely.
 
 They like the border, but they still would like to see high contrast modes. They like the progress, but would like to see more detail put into bore low vision features. They do understand that this is very much a project in its early stages, and would like to see a full keyboard on screen at some point in the future.
 Thanks,

It's working well for me here too. Very happy to now have the ability to add words to the dictionary directly from the custom keyboard. 
 The new visual is useful too. 
 Correcting a word I spelled wrong while typing manually also appears to be working. 
 And I like the compromise you found for the letter versus whole word situation with manually typed words. 
 
 So all in all a great build☺️

Hello Kosta,
Yes, I just tried it three times and I couldn't do anything and I had to go to Notes to change to the iOS keyboard.

When I go back to the app and tap on the amount field it will bring up a number pad.

One thing though. I was doing some banking and I went to enter an amount into my accounts balance App, and once I tapped in the amount field, I could not do anything. The FlickType keyboard was present, but I could not switch to the iOS keyboard, to numbers, or dismiss the keyboard. I had to go to notes, switch to the iOS keyboard, and then come back to the App called balance.

I had this problem quite a while ago and reported it, but I haven't been in a financial app while typing with FlickType.

 Yes. 
 All words you enter manually will be entered into the dictionary once you are finished using FlickType. 
 The next time you type with FlickType, those words will be available in the dictionary.

Hi George, 
 The words will be entered into the dictionary once you have dismissed the keyboard, or sent the message or email you were typing.

I also tried editing a word, which worked perfectly, and when I went back to review word by word FlickType pronounced the word instead of each letter. I know this was buging some people. Personally, I expect some trade offs when dealing with accessibility.

Re: Build 85

 

Hi George,

End of typing session is anytime you exit or dismiss the keyboard, so you need to do one of these two actions in order for the word to be added.

Does that help?

Thanks!
Ashley

Re: Build 83

I guess that's related to the similar behaviour when deleting text. As you flick left, words that you typed manually will be deleted letter by letter.
The difficulty I think is that sometimes, like when you've made a small error in manually typing a word, you very much do want it deleted letter by letter. But other times, like if deciding to delete a whole sentence, you would prefer that the whole word be deleted.
Not sure how this could be resolved, so I would stick with the way it is now.

Would like others opinion on this issue. When manually typing a word and you use the 2 finger flick, you get the feedback of that particular word letter by letter. I don't think I need the word spelled back to me. I believe I would just prefer to hear the word. Just my opinion. What do you think? Thanks.
