Voice-to-text has gotten worse suddenly Respondida1 voto 15 comentarios
It seems like in the last few days my voice-to-text feature has gotten significantly worse. I don't know if this is a Swiftkey thing or a Google thing, but it started happening a few days ago after my phone installed an update and updated a bunch of apps at the same time. The interface looks a bit different, and there are a few significant changes:
- The timeout when I stop talking has drastically decreased, to the point where if I hesitate even a tiny bit between words it stops listening.
- The guesses it makes are often way off, where before they were very reliable
- There was previously a feature where I could tap on a predicted word, and it would bring up a list of other guesses for the word, which was extremely useful when it got something wrong, but it doesn't appear to do that anymore.
- Previously I could hit backspace to delete the last word and it would stay in listening mode, now hitting backspace makes it stop listening.
I use the voice-to-text a ton, so if it's really this broken now it's sort of a dealbreaker for me with Swiftkey, which would be a bummer since I've really liked it up until now. Has anyone else experienced this change recently and found a way to fix it? For reference, I have a Samsung Galaxy s10 with fully updated OS and app. Thanks!

Deactivate auto spacing after inserting a period ('.')11 votos 12 comentarios
typing web addresses into the address bar of the browser always inserts an auto space after hitting the dot key. Thus I always have to correct by using backspace and type again.
Same problem with other situations, where I do not automatically need an auto space after the dot, e. g., when typing mail addresses.
there a way ariund it and have a setting option, allowing to deactivate auto spaces after a dot?
Stop period/dot from forcing a space after it34 votos 33 comentarios
Currently using latest beta. I am a technical / computer person and therefore my writing vocabulary often includes things with period/dots in them that are not words (i.e. e.g. 192.168.1.1 www.vcu.edu and so-on). The constant forced auto-insertion of a space when I am trying to use a period as a dot, not as punctuation, is driving me crazy and often forces mangled/incorrect emails, texts, etc. I thought turning on the option to insert a period by double-tapping the space bar would turn that off - it did not.
I seem to recall in a previous version of Swiftkey there was the ability to turn off the dot/period from forcing a space after it.
I think when I tried another keyboard (GBoard?) it did not do that. However, I am used to the way Swiftkey works and would hate to switch to something else....

Bug: Must not auto-capitalize in Georgian0 votos 1 comentario
Starting with Android 10, SwiftKey does auto-capitalization for Georgian language.
The problem is, Georgian does NOT have capital letters, so SwiftKey puts some weird Mtavruli script letters in their place, making the letters appear very weird when the text is sent to other systems.
To reproduce: Enable "Auto capitalize" feature in SwiftKey on Android 10. Type and send Georgian text in a facebook message to someone. Open that message on a Windows 7 computer - you will see a square as the first letter. Opening it on some other systems also exposes the problem - the first letters just look weird (e.g. on openSUSE Linux).
I would disable "Auto capitalize", but it's a global option for all languages and I still want it in English.
P.S. Gboard also had this problem, but they fixed it very soon after Android 10 release.

10-key only keypad1 voto 5 comentariosEnhancement request: I'm not sure where to request this but most other keyboards have a 10-key, numbers only keypad. It shows up when you click their 123 key on the main keyboard (usually the bottom left area). It is also part of most home, or larger laptop keyboards, on the right side. Several folks have made similar requests to Swiftkey,even as far back as 3 years ago and the "answered" reply is never a good answer. Can we get this in the paid app one day or do the developers not know how to? I would think it would be as simple as rearranging the number screen that you already have but in a 10-key arrangement. A row of numbers isn't good enough and is hard to use. We already get a row of numbers on the main keyboard so the one offered now doesn't really add anything for the users. If you want to see an acceptable keypad, for example, take a look at Gboard's numeric keyboard. If there is a place to officially make this request, can you please forward this to that forum or the developers todo list? Thanks.
MS Clipboard Cloud Sync EPIC FAIL Respondida0 votos 1 comentario
I'm a senior IT systems engineer with MS creds. I just spent nearly three hours trying to get windows to sync my clipboard to/from my "ANDROID" device. Dont waste your time unless you have a Samsung (or win10 device).
But there's clear instructions... even MS support clearly indicating "Android". Just configure Windows clipboard sync, then configure "Your Phone", which then sends a link to your android for the app "Your Phone Companion" to complete the link. That was handy. Only when it's all setup and I'm in the app and see the clipboard sync feature missing that i dig into some MS support forums, follow their clear "Android" instructions, which for some reason takes me to Samsung support. Oh they have a unique app which works.
But then I discovered lots of articles and forum posts up to 3 years old talking about how MS Swiftkey is going to integrate this. Perfect, of course, how easy, surely by now... just wipe my old Swiftkey account and sign in with a new MS one, reconfigure everything and voila...nope. Oh turns it on MS Swiftkey BETA. Ok ok...install, configure... oh no, BETA just removes the ability to specify a search engine and forces you to use Bing. Quality feature.
Oh there's an API that tweaks Swiftkey for this feature (and apparently many more amazing things).... step 1: root your phone....
ive configured my PC settings, the "Your Phone" app, the "Your Phone Companion" app, Reinstalled swiftkey, installed and configured Swiftkey Beta. For NOTHING. And anybody who gets wind of this feature for their "ANDROID" is going to google it (because Bing), assume it works, and waist hours. Absolutely unacceptable.
3 hours of troubleshooting, 30 minutes of writing this ticket, you owe me $437.50 plus tax. Where should I send my bill?

Screen goes dark whenever I start typing0 votos 1 comentarioI don't know if this is because of an update or because of my new phone, but my screen started going dark whenever I start typing with Microaoft Swiftkey. It didn't use to do this before and it's driving me NUTS. I CAN'T SEE A THING. If they're going to implement this feature, at least give the users an option to switch it off!!!! I've been having such a hard time typing and I'm this close to just uninstalling it altogether!!!!!

Bugs with translator0 votos 1 comentario
I tried reporting this before, but it doesn't get fixed. Very frustrating...
1. The translator will sometimes just cut a translation in the middle, or ignore a word. This seems to happen when emojis are included in the text to be translated. In that case the fix is easy, just remove the emojis before translating...
2. Translator doesn't work if you try to translate a message that has already been translated. To reproduce: In WhatsApp for instance, copy one message, and translate. Close the translation. Copy the message again and translate, this time it doesn't translate.
word prediction with multiple languages3 votos 12 comentarios
I use Swiftkey Beta with English and Tamil languages. When I type in English, Swiftkey is predicting words in both English and Tamil. Most of the word prediction in Tamil is nonsensical. Can I change the Swiftkey setting so when I type in English, I only get English word prediction? This change is leading to so much error.
Add a delete key (delete to the right)6 votos 17 comentarios
Would love the option to include a delete key on top of the present backspace key. A lot of efficiency gains could be had by allowing me to delete rather than having to tap and move precisely in order to use the backspace key.
Tldr: have the keys that allow me to delete going right or left.

Voice to Text typing auto correct gone. Respondida0 votos 7 comentariosA few weeks ago, maybe a month, the voice to text feature for auto dictation changed. It used to have an autocorrect feature just like the SwiftKey one and it would also allow me to select sentences and predict what I meant to say by giving me different selections of the sentence when I tapped the underlined word. It was a wonderful feature. The voice command box was also white, which goes with the theme of my keyboard. Now it is nothing but a black box and when I try to go into the settings to turn this back on it doesn't do it anymore. I really miss the autocorrect features on The Voice to text. It was fantastic. How do I get it back?
Handwriting Text Msg Note 20 Ultra Respondida0 votos 1 comentarioI owned a Note 3 & Note 8 while exclusively using SwiftKey as my keyboard. I had no issues using my S Pen to write text messages. All I had to do was hover over the text input bar and a small circle with the letter "T" in it would appear. Tapping on it would switch the keyboard to a blank section to write in. WHY IS THIS FEATURE GONE??? 😡 Why is your support team telling other users it's not a feature? It was there!!! I want to know why it was removed? I've been using SwiftKey for YEARS and this has seriously put my loyalty in jeopardy!!!
Please update Cantonese Jyutping Input for Android Respondida0 votos 1 comentario
I think Swiftkey is a great keyboard on Android but it is lagging far away behind its main competitor Gboard when it comes to Chinese Cantonese Jyutping Input Method. After testing the keyboard for about a week, here is my observations :
1) It doesn't memorize new words.
2) While typing a sentence some very basic words won't appear on the "word suggestions". Simply put it's like the predictive text isn't working are isn't working consistently.
3) I also realize that a lots of characters are missing
I am using Swiftkey for Android and I have decided to use another keyboard for the moment since I just can't use the Cantonese Input on Swiftkey.
Is there a chance that the team behind update the keyboard fixing all these issues? I really enjoy using Swiftkey in general. Thank you
