Build 152


 

- New half-screen, direct-commit mode where all text changes are instantly reflected in the current text field. This currently only works for non-VoiceOver users due to iOS limitations, but we are still looking for ways to bring it to VoiceOver users as well.
- The "Next keyboard" key and setting will be hidden on devices that have a dedicated, always-present "Next keyboard" key (such as the iPhone X), or if FlickType is the only keyboard in the keyboard list.
- Bugfixes.

Hello,


As always solid build. So I can have my business partner take a look at the half screen option. How would you go about activating it? Does VoiceOver not see the toggle?

Thanks,

Ed

Thank you Ed. There's quite a few changes under the hood so I'm hoping that I didn't break anything.

The half-screen mode will be enabled automatically when VoiceOver is disabled. There is currently no option to activate, but toggling VoiceOver will toggle between full and half screen modes.

Hey Kosta, 

Thanks for the quick reply. I will have my business partner give it a try and give feedback.

Hi Kosta,
I am trying the half screen keyboard under my CCTV. I worms well and is exactly what I would want for a FlickType option... if it could be used with VoiceOver.
Thanks for another great build,

Hi costa.
Like the half screen option without voiceover.
However, when I finish typing text, do I need to return to full screen inorder for text to show up in the text box?
Also, I'm getting typing feedback from iOS when typing without voiceover on

Kind regards,

George Cham

I actually was using the half screen keyboard to reply to a text message and I like it. Is there anyway to just ignore Voiceover while gestures are being performed in the keyboard? I noticed that your using the voice API that is set aside for Zoom users. This is great. It would almost work perfectly it Voiceover could be ignored whilst your typing, then Voiceover could interact with the screen above like it would normally. 

This built really has me hopeful. 

Thanks again, 
Ed

Hi Kosta, 

I love the half screen mode. I really hope you can find a way to implement it with VoiceOver active. 

A couple of small points about the self voiced feature when VoiceOver is off: 
It does not seem to announce when you go to a new line. 
If I were using it full time, I would want the ability to change the voice if possible. As it stands it is using the system voice, which is based on your location. For me, that's the truly awful Maire voice for Ireland ☺️ 

George, there is an option in settings to have the voice on or off.

Hello David, 
I noticed that the half screen doesn't announce the new line... Its probably a VoiceOver announcement.
