Re: New release: An entirely new sound treatment has arrived with build 29!

Daniel McGee

Hi Kosta & Ashley
Would it be possible to have a toggle for the pitch for spell words in settings? 
I have just updated to the latest build and liked how words were spelled out before. Its a hearing aid thing for me that's all. The lower the pitch the better. So how it was before the latest build was fine for me. 
Besides that, I don't mind the new sound effects. Actually find the tapping of the keys when typing to be quite a bit louder witch I consider to be a bonus for me. 
Thanks for redding and keep up the amazing work!

Thank you Brandon. For now you can turn off the deletion sound from the
setting, and we will be adding the old sounds back as an option in the next

And just a general note for now as well as in the future, you can always
revert back to the previous release if you just go to TestFlight and select
"Previous builds" towards the bottom of the page.

I can't say I like the new sounds to be honest, though the typing is the
least of the problems. It is just a bit loud for my taste, the older one
was quiet, but I could get used to that. The deletion sound though, I
really don't like that at all, not only is it loud, its very high pitched
almost to the point of being painful.
