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

 

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.

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

I like the previous version with the loud keyboard clicks.
How do I get them back?

You can always downgrade to one of the last few releases by choosing the "Previous builds" at the bottom of the Testflight page for FlickType.

FYI we will add a setting in the future to select your favorite tap sound and volume.

Thank you for the feedback!

Thanks costa,
Downgraded to previous build, but the keyboard clicks were still the same.
It would be great if a setting could be added to make clicks loud or soft.

Kind regards,

George Cham

HI.

is there a way to clear the text you have typed without copying it? for example say you write something and decide to scrap it because you want to start over?
Just wondering.

Maria,

I don't believe such a clear text option exists. It really isn't needed since you can single finger swipe left as you would to delete the last word typed and simply leave your finger on the screen and FlickType will rapidly delete everything you've entered.

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

Hi Maria,

Have you tried to shake the phone and tap "undo"? This is a quick way to undo all the text you've entered.

It also works great with my ipod touch 6 as well, the "shake to undo" thing.
