Punctuation & Symbols Read Back

Benny Barber <rebelben@...>
 

I’m not too thrilled with the read back of all punctuation and symbols.  It seems too verbose if you have a lot of them.  I would think the spell words setting would suffice for those that want to hear all punctuation and symbolsread back.  I noticed that when you bring up the menu the read back that occurs then does not read all punctuation and symbols.  Could we have a toggle to turn on and off all the punctuation and symbols read back?

 

Also, I noticed that when you have a number that might have a decimal within it and you swipe right, the read back is only the numbers after the decimal.  It seems it would be more accurate for the read back to be all the numbers and symbols in the string just type.  For example:  $25.55

Right now the read back is “55”.  It would seem to be more appropriate for the read back to be “twenty five dollars and fifty five cents”.

 

Just my thoughts.  I’ll keep checking it out.  Thanks.

Looking for alpha testers

 

Hi all,

We recently crossed 500 beta testers, and it won't be long before we hit a thousand or more. This poses some significant challenges when it comes to iterating fast on the app, while ensuring that no critical bugs make it to such a large group of users. Even though the app is still very much in beta, we want our testers to be using it as a daily tool that they can rely on, and we don't want to become more risk-averse in how we develop the app.

To this end, we are introducing a new "alpha" program. The idea is to have a smaller group of users who are willing to receive more frequent, and sometimes less polished versions of the app, and based on their feedback, builds that are deemed acceptable will then be pushed to the wider beta group which could eventually, and hopefully, number thousands of people.

If you are interested, the only thing you need to do is just let us know and we will add your email to the internal Alpha group. Everything else will be the same, including how you get builds from TestFlight. There is nothing else that you need to do on your end. We might create a special sub-group in the mailing list to gather all feedback from the alpha group there, rather than have everyone be notified about messages relating to builds that they can't yet get. We do want the alpha discussion to be done in the open though, so everyone can read about it and anticipate what's coming. More details on how to submit alpha feedback will be coming soon.

Thank you for your incredible help and support so far, you guys have been awesome!

Explore the alternative way to enter numbers and symbols

 

Hi List,



As the FlickType Wiki says:



There are two ways to input numbers and symbols: 1) 2-finger flick left or
right will give you access to the full numbers and symbols keyboards. 2) Tap
and hold the keys. There is now a new line at the top of the keyboard full
of symbol and number groups. Drag your finger over one and release to select
it. Navigate with flick down and up to other symbols and numbers in the same
group. Explore.



I strongly encourage users to explore the alternative way to enter numbers
and symbols. Single finger press and hold on the FlickType keyboard and
slide up until you hear @, period, number sign and a few others on a new
line that pops up above the qwerty keyboard. If you release on the @ symbol
in this line, FlickType will insert it into your output section and you can
single finger flick down to cycle through other choices within that group.
If you've set up your email address within the app, one of the choices
that's available in the @ sign group list is your email address. This is a
very quick way to generate input of your email address which many sites and
apps seem to require. By the same token, in the number sign group, one of
the available options is your phone number. This can be a faster way to
input some symbols and I highly recommend that everyone explore the options
available in this alternative input method and become familiar with what's
available under each group via flicking down.



Happy FlickTyping.

Re: New release #30: An entirely new sound treatment has arrived, now more refined

 

Tony,

I believe the flicking left and holding in order to rapidly delete typed
input is still mentioned in the instructions. But it is possible that I'm
remembering it from the Fleksy days of old. It certainly still works and is
a quick way to get rid of everything unless you've typed something extremely
long. I do love FlickType but if I'm typing something that long, I'm going
to do it with my computer keyboard.

Happy FlickTyping.

Alan

You can always downgrade to one of the last few releases by choosing the

App changes follow below. Please report all your feedback by replying to this topic. Thank you for testing FlickType!

In this release (30):
- Lowered the pitch of the new deletion sound.
- Restored the original tap sound, but a bit louder than before. New tap sound is used in landscape, tell us what you think!
- Use lower pitch when spelling words, rather than higher. Thanks Daniel!
- Don't use higher pitch to announce tokens with numbers or symbols.
- Fixed double announcement of typed text when invoking the menu.
- Added back missing voice feedback when VoiceOver is disabled. Note: having VoiceOver disabled is generally unsupported. For best results, please ensure VoiceOver is enabled when using FlickType. You can set your accessibility shortcut to include toggling VoiceOver when you triple-click the device button. Reading of punctuation is known to be buggy when VoiceOver is disabled.

In the previous release (29):
- Complete revamp of of all sound effects: taps, deletions, errors, and more. Tell us what you think!
- Deletion announcements will now always use a lower pitch, and will not use the word "Deleted". You can turn that back on from the settings.
- Updated deletion sound effect, hopefully this is less intrusive. Thanks Serina! You can now also turn it off from the settings.
- Words with numbers and symbols will now be announced correctly and in detail, even if they contain no letters.
- Spelling of words now uses a higher pitch.
- Apostrophes in contractions like "it's" will be announced. Thanks Alan!
- Capital letter announcements will use the shorthand "cap" prefix instead of the full word "capital".
- Fixed pronunciation of colon symbol. Thanks Yana!
- Fixed wrong iPhone X keyboard positioning when in landscape mode.
- Added a few more words to the dictionary.

Re: Dictionary Word Requests and Mispronunciations`

I see you fixed the issue on the latest release! Thank you so much! You guys are awesome!


Latest build FlickType Keyboard, Version 0.1 (29) won't run on an iPhone 5

Daniel McGee
 

Can anyone confirm. When using an iPhone 5 the latest build from test flight FlickType is unable to run when the app loads? 
I have already tried quitting from the app switcher and even restarting the 5. On both attempt, didn't work.


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! 
Daniel

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
release.

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.

detail, even if they contain no letters.

instead
of the full word "capital".

Great app. Is there a way of distinguishing words with an apostrophe from ones that don’t? At the moment you can’t tell which one has been typed until you flick backwards. Dictionary suggestions are pronounced the same.
