Two issues while manually typing

Salman Haider
 

Hi Kosta and Ashley and everyone else on the list,

Two issues that I would like to mention related to manual typing. I am
not sure if these have been discussed in any thread before, but I
haven't come across such a conversation if they have indeed been
brought up. I am going to detail them as best as I can:

1. During manual typing, there is an extra space inserted after the
last letter you type, if you make a mistake and swipe left to delete a
letter and then continue manually typing the rest of the word. Ok, I
know that sounds confusing, so here's an example. Lets say I am trying
to type the word"orange". I will start with the first letter o, then
type r, then I want to type a, but lets say I end up tapping s by
mistake. So I swipe left to delete the s, and then continue typing the
rest of the word. That is, ange.
Now, when I swipe right, I will hear Voiceover say, ange which gives
me the impression that the word was split up at the point I swiped
left to make a correction. This is confirmed when on checking the
text, it shows that the "or" and the "ange" have been seperated with a
space between them.

2. I also notice often while manually typing that the incorrect letter
gets typed when lifting the finger. Meaning, if I'm typing a word,
many times when I lift my finger to type a letter, a double keyboard
click sound is heard and the letter next to the letter I was
attempting to type gets entered instead. Which is why I find myself
swiping left to make corrections very regularly. But doing so causes
the problem I mentioned in number one. So more often than not I pretty
much have to delete the partial word and start typing it from scratch.

Thanks,

Salman

Hey Salman,

I had reported the issue with the spaces being inserted into manually typed words, but I had not realized what was causing it. So thanks for that and hopefully Kosta can now fix it.

I also reported your second issue, which Kosta has acknowledged and says will be fixed in a future build.

Thank you for the feedback.

There are currently numerous spacing issues, most prominently when doing manual typing as well as when entering emoji. These will be addressed soon.

Same goes for getting the wrong character when you lift up your finger to manually type something.

Thank you for reporting, please keep it coming, smile!
