I have been having a lot of trouble recently with the google voice recognition not "pasting in" to text fields in Android. It tends to work fine the first time you use it in an app but not after. And it seems to work consistently when I use Google voice recognition "directly" in Chrome through its mic button or in Google Assistant. I have tried with both the beta and the regular swiftkey versions. I'm running Android 10 on a Huawei P20 Pro...

Swipe left to delete gesture not working everytime Respondida1 voto 9 comentarios
Swiping left to delete gesture isn't triggering consistently (I'm getting 3/10 successful gestures).
I'm observing this using a Pixel 5 with SwiftKey 220.127.116.11 (tried the beta as well which had the same problem too). Also been able to reproduce this in a Pixel 3a and Xiaomi Poco X3.

Swiftkey showing notification about full installation Respondida0 votos 6 comentarios
I just changed my phone from Huawei to Samsung, where Huawei got preinstalled Swiftkey. I wanted now to change Samsung's default keyboard with Swiftkey so I downloaded it from Google Play. I changed my default keyboard for it in phone settings and everything seems to work fine but Swiftkey keeps showing me notifications (in taskbar and as toast notification) about full functionality of Swiftkey will be after finishing the installation process.

Voice Dictation now very slow and Inaccurate Respondida-1 votos 1 comentarioIt has become painfully apparent that over the last few months, voice dictation with SwiftKey has become unusable. It is now very slow, lags severely, is very inaccurate, or flat out not work. If I switch to Gboard or the Samsung Keyboard, dictation works fine, so it's definitely a SwiftKey issue. To prove I'm not blowing smoke about this issue, here is a video comparison I made using voice dictation comparing SwiftKey and Gboard. YouTube link: https://youtu.be/7rKcEbtTyaQ It used to work great, and I have been using SwiftKey for over 10 years, even purchasing the "Pro" version back when that was a thing, along with the paid SwiftKey Tablet X keyboard app. Not sure if there was some internal change to a different voice dictation engine aeaynfrom Google Voice, but whatever has been done needs to be reverted as its not usable in it's current state. Please fix this issue. SwiftKey used to be amazing, but I'm forced to use other options due to the performance issues it now has.

Write "un po' " in italian Respondida0 votos 1 comentario
With the latest versions of swiftkey, an annoying error in the Italian language has returned that had already been solved some time ago with regard to the Italian language.
Unfortunately, the corrector no longer corrects "po" with "po' ". This, in Italian, is an error and it is not possible that the corrector does not put the apostrophe. At present it is not even possible to make the keyboard learn the correct word, making it impossible to write correctly except by entering the symbol board. I sincerely hope that the problem is solved, it is not acceptable that the corrector does not suggest the correct word.

Split keyboard unusable on Galaxy Tab S5e in landscape mode Respondida0 votos 1 comentario
After the latest update (18.104.22.168) the keys are squeezed together on the both sides of the screen. They are too narrow, too small and too close to each other which makes using the keyboard almost impossible. There is also no way to move or scale them horizontally.
Pfeiltasten beim Daumenlayout plötzlich nicht mehr in der Mitte untereinander justiert sondern unten in einer Reihe ... ??? Respondida1 voto 1 comentario
Hi Support, seit gestern ist meine Swift Key ohne mein Zutun total anders. Ich liebe das Daumenlayout und plötzlich sind die Pfeiltasten unten in einer Reihe, statt vorher und bisher mittig untereinander (grüne Markierung). Und die Tasten links sind oben um eins verschoben. Jetzt kann ich nur noch sehr schwer tippen, weil ich das andere Layout so gewohnt war.
Kann ich meine Pfeiltasten so justieren, dass die wieder mittig untereinader stehen und die Buchstabentasten oben links nicht um eins nach links verschoben sind?
Danke für Hilfe.

Ability to choose long-press letter options Respondida0 votos 1 comentarioI think this isn't too farfetched. Basically, I want the user to be able to select which diacritic appear for the letters they long press. For example, "Ǥ" appearing when I long press G. I know there are language packs which include such diacritics, but I'm currently developing a writing system which relies on the following diacritics: Ŧ, Ƶ, Đ, Ħ, Ǥ, ẞ, Ɛ, and Ɔ. Obviously there should be a limit per letter on the keyboard, so I wouldn't add 100 different diacritic, but I'm sure the developers can set a maximum limit for such a thing. The way it could be done is allowing the user to either add a "custom" keyboard layout, similar to QWERTY, AZERTY, etc, or modify the existing layouts just by choosing which diacritics appear upon long pressing a button.

Problem with SwiftKey on mobile forum Respondida0 votos 1 comentario
I use SwiftKey as the keyboard on my phone. It has the option to swipe when typing or to tap letters individually. It also has predictive text to finish half-typed words and to get suggestions for the next word in the sentence you're writing.
When I'm on the forums (mobile theme), when I'm typing a post using the swipe feature, it types double words, likelike thisthis. But it doesn't do that when I'm tapping individual letters or using predictive text to finish my words.
This doesn't happen on any other app or website. Does anyone have any idea how to fix this problem? Good
Multi language Respondida0 votos 1 comentarioI enable 3 languages (English, Spanish, German) and use swipe, which I realize is hard, but it has become almost unusable in the last 2 months with a really low prediction rate.

Voice typing Respondida-4 votos 1 comentarioHello, Before you've used Google voice typing but now you're using Microsoft's I guess.

Allow customization of characters on alternative keyboard. (numeric/ special characters) Respondida0 votos 1 comentarioSwiftKey could allow customization of special characters showed on numeric keyboard. Note that special characters are very related to each user special needs. Also, sometimes user needs some few alphabetic characters when using numeric alternative keyboard. Passwords are a typical case where it occurs. Regular characters (a to x) could be accessed thru long press on this keyboard and this will eliminate the need to go back and forth on regular and numeric keyboards. The layout on numeric keyboard offers enough slots to do it. Another problem is that the current version changes the special characters to another one when long pressed without any hint of which caharcater will be used. This is a mess

Voice typing keeps cutting off in Google Docs - SwiftKey on Android Respondida0 votos 1 comentario
About a week ago (about Sept. 25, 2020), my Google Voice Typing, which I use with SwiftKey (now owned by Microsoft), stopped working. The microphone stayed on in listening mode for only about two to three seconds (depending on my device), unless I kept talking rapidly and unnaturally without any pauses, almost as though I were reading a book for one of those speeded up commercials. If I paused at all, or stopped to think briefly, the microphone would shut off, and I'd have to tap it again to continue. Sometimes it seems like it doesn't hear me at all after I tap 'Tap to start', or maybe just hears a few words, stops listening in the middle of a sentence, and then stops a few seconds afterwards, as though I had stopped speaking. It never used to work like this… I was able to use it very efficiently to compose writings on Google Docs. I would be able to pause from 5 to 10 seconds before continuing speaking.
I wonder if the speech buffer is filling up, and that's turning off the microphone, and then it stops a few seconds later because it's not hearing anything anymore.
This degradation happened about the same time on all my Android devices where I used Voice Typing. I noticed that I was asked to agree to permissions again when this problem started, and the user interface also changed, so I think that this happened because of a faulty upgrade.
I haven't yet found anyone else complaining about this happening recently. I also wonder if it's some app I installed that uses the microphone, but I can't find anything so far.
Any ideas…? Thanks. David
P.S. I tried Voice Typing in Google Docs on my Chromebook laptop, and the microphone stays on for about 23 seconds after I stop talking. This is how it should work on my Android devices, and pretty much how it used to work, although I'm not sure it stayed on quite that long. I wish there were a setting on it so it would stay on indefinitely until you turned it off.
P.P.S. I just replaced SwiftKey with Gboard on my Android tablet. Now Google Voice Typing works just fine. In fact, it appears to stay on for a very long time before turning off, just the way I would like it to act. Strange that a Google update has just effectively destroyed one of Microsoft's SwiftKeys most attractive features… Hopefully, it was just an unfortunate coincidence.
And too bad that Gboard is apparently not as good as SwiftKey. I guess I'll find out...
Give us the ability to switch voice back to Google api for voice typing Respondida0 votos 3 comentariosThe newest SwiftKey beta doesn't use the Google voice typing and there's no customization on it, it's too sensitive and stops voice input when I pause for a new sentence. Word recognition is worse than Google, it won't let me type curse words, and what's up with the tiny delete button in the corner. Y'all can do voice to text on your own if you want but let us choose between yours and Googles
