Build 151

 

What's new:
- Reading back your text with a 3-finger press can now also be done with 2-fingers. This should allow Accessibility Zoom users to utilize this feature, which previously conflicted with the zoom gestures.
- Words will now also be spelled after moving the cursor.
- Added voice feedback when VoiceOver is disabled.
- Add setting to toggle "Voice Feedback", enabled by default.
- Fixed dictionary capitalization issue for automatically added words. Thanks David!
- Gesture bugfixes.

Previously:
- You can now use your existing iOS text replacement shortcuts with FlickType. Configure text replacements from iOS Settings, General, Keyboard, Text Replacement. If you tap-type the shortcut, it will automatically be expanded into its phrase. If you type it accurately by touch-typing each letter, you'll need to flick down to expand it. Replacement shortcuts can only contain letters, but expanded phrases can be anything, including numbers, symbols, spaces, and even emoji. Be creative, smile! Please note: the replacements don't work inside the container app due to iOS limitations.

Kosta, thanks for adding the spell back by word, but I would like to be able to disable the spell back when typing and only have spell back when advancing by word. Thanks.

Hi Kosta,

Good job on the capitalisation of words automatically entered into the dictionary. I've tested this a few times and it works very well. The two finger gesture to read is great as well, though I don't have zoom enabled. I like each word being spelled out when reviewing text as well. And I could be wrong, but it just feels a little more crisp on this build which is nice.

Kosta,
To clarify my issue with the spellback feature. I like the spellback feature, but having spellback on when you flick right to space kind of interrupts my typing if I hesitate just a bit. I would like to have 2 options for spellback. the first option would be to have spellback on in all scenarios of spacing, advancing by word and flicking through alternative words. The second option would be to have spellback on in just advancing by word and flicking through alternative words; having spellback off while spacing. Just my opinion. Thanks.

I absolutely agree with Benny herre.
Another thing that might work, is to have a separate gesture, to make VO spell back the word. That being said, I don't really what was wrong with the previous method. Where spellback would work the way it does now, but you would be able to disable and enable it within the settings.

Hello

I agree as well. I would like to see a gesture to have the word spelled back to me. I usually type enough that the spelling doesn't get in the way. It can get annoying if you have to take a small pause to think before you type a word.

Thanks and great job with the last couple of builds.

Hello,
I agree that a spellback gesture or setting to enable spelling for reading back or hearing word alternatives would be helpful. If I pause, sometimes hearing a spelling interrupts my train of thought, and sometimes, when flicking through word suggestions, hearing the spelling is good for clarification of certain letters. I do appreciate being able to hear spellings as I read by word. The new text replacement feature is also great--especially for emojis 👍 ☺️
