Re: Comments on Voice Changes in Latest Update

Hi David. Why don't you toggle use pitch change off in settings in Voiceover? I have this off and I'm not experiencing the voice changes in FlickType. I'd rather Voiceover beep than raise pitch for capital letters.

Hello. I don't know if I'm in the minority with this but I would prefer that VoiceOver's voice not change when interacting with the Flicktype keyboard. One of the things I've always liked about the keyboard in Flicktype is that it tries to mirror the experience when interacting with the standard iOS keyboard. With the latest update, the pitch of the voice is noticeably higher when typing or when changing from letters to numbers. When typing, this provides the false impression that I'm typing in upper case. I'd personally like to see this change reverted back to the way it was. Alternatively, could there be an option in settings to enable or disable the voice change options? This would satisfy both camps of users.

Many thanks. Don't get me wrong; I still love this app. I just would prefer the voice to remain the same when I interact with its keyboard.
