Re: Words with apostrophes.

Chuck Dean
 

When typing with FlickType, many contractions are automatically generated when you type. For example I'd, we'll, it's, we've, shouldn't. I typed all these contractions by simply typing the letters... The apostrophe is automatically inserted.
I hope this helps.

Hi. So I've noticed that it is somewhat laborious to write a word with an apostrophe in it. I notice that in the punctuation options there is an apostrophe s option. Would it be possible to include apostrophe d, ve, and ll as well.



problems with FlickType on Iphone 6S

Graham Page <graham@...>
 

Hi all.

 

I have 2 IPhones.  One is an IPhone SE and FlickType works fine on that.  The other is an IPhone 6S and I am having problems with this phone.  In order for Flicktype to work when typing I have to turn voiceover off.  Is this a known problem? Is there a solution? With voiceover on when I launch flicktype on the 6S it just says something like typing ready but there is no keyboard to type on.  This is with a clean install of flickType.

 

Regards

 

Graham

Re: Cannot delete saved dictionary word.

Type the word in question one letter at a time. Swiped right and then flick up. The word should be removed from the dictionary.

Re: Voiceover Behaving Strangely

That's perplexing. Is the voice feedback set to on in settings in FlickType?

Hello, all,

Perhaps someone has encountered this issue and can assist me! When I open up FLickType, I am able to see the screen just fine -- it works as expected, if I turn off voiceover. So, to explain a little bit, my problem is this:

When I have Voiceover active and open Flick Type, I am unable to utilize the app; all of my voiceover gestures perform their voiceover equivolents. I have heard that it is possible to utilized FlickType without turning off Voiceover. Therefore my problem is me! :). What setting may I have toggled that shouldn't be, weather with Voiceover, or Flicktype itself?

To be clear, the app will not type when I tap the screen unless Voiceover is off. I can't get it to function while voiceover is off -- so for example going to the menu requires me to tripple tap home, swipe up with two fingers, and then tripple tap home to turn it back on.

I am using latest iOS with an iPhone 7. I am not on the beta but will send the email if this problem will go away

Thanks for your assistance!

Do you have touch typing or direct touch active? As long as one of those are enabled, and standard typing isn’t, you should be fine? Try rotoring to see whether direct touch is enabled and make sure it is.

Re: Some feedback on the released version

Hello, as a fellow landscape flicker, if I want to hear what I typed, I just turn my iPhone into portrait mode and put my hand over the ear piece. Of course, I do not have the keyboard locked in landscape mode.

Hi Christo, and thank you for the kind words.

The earpiece proximity sensor seems to automatically be disabled by iOS when holding the device in landscape orientation. I don't think there's anything we can do about that, unfortunately, but we might add a new gesture to perform the read back function soon.

Some feedback on the released version

Christo de Klerk <cjdk@...>
 

Hello

FlickType is working really well on my iPhone 5C. It is a pleasure to use it and I am looking forward to its new developments.

There is just one issue I notice which I don't know if it might already be a known issue. When I use the app in landscape mode (which I find rather nice), I notice that the lift to speak feature does not work.

Keep up the good work.

Kind regards

Christo de Klerk

I had to transition to a new host because TMDHosting is not a good host. DreamHost seems to be much better so far. Just sayin'. If anyone has been experiencing slowness or complete downness on theblindkind.com, I'm so, so very sorry. I'm hopeful this won't continue. Once all the DNS propagates, things should be much better. I can already see from where it propagated near me that it's much faster and more stable.

Wow! This is exciting! I can't wait to test the system wide keyboard!

Re: Emoji

Gerardo Corripio <gera1027@...>
 

Wow so that's exciting! So would we who are already Betatesters, be eligible for trying out the keyboard extention? I imagine you'd be sending instructions if we need to download the beta app etc?

Emoji

Simon Wheatcroft
 

Emoji support. Is there a way emoji support could be added. I tried to add a text replacement for a word to an emoji. Then add that word to flick types keyboard. This does not work neither does copying the text over as the replacement only works as you type. Is this something that that would just work in the system wide version?

Thought about instructions

When I was first learning to use this app I wish I had known that voiceover gestures do not work when typing. But of course they do in the menuB

Re: Deletion clicks and latency

 

Thank you, Benny and Alan! Appreciate you two sharing these details as this can help us resolve the issue, we'll look into it this.

If anyone else has noticed this behavior or has anything else to add please do share.

Re: Test message to Flicktype subgroups and former group address

 

Hi all, just wanted to confirm what Alan said.

The hello group will be inactive until we are live on the App Store. From there on, users that are neither part of the beta or the alpha will be posting there.

The alpha and beta groups are groups dedicated to alpha and beta builds respectively.

Also note that the hello group is what groups.io calls the parent group, and alpha and beta are subgroups. Meaning all members of alpha and beta are automatically members of the hello group as well.

Hope this helps, and please bear with us while we are still figuring things out :)

Warmly,
Kosta
