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
Not possible to set Google voice as default voice app Respondida-1 votos 3 comentariosFor some reason, Google voice is not activated anymore when I presd Mic on the keyboard. Only some internal voice typing is activated that does not recognise any other spoken language apart from English.
Right to Left support for brackets Respondida1 voto 3 comentarios
Swiftkey on my previous phone worked well but since switching to a new phone, brackets show up in the opposite direction when I try to type in RTL languages.
Furthermore, a space is automatically added after one type of bracket and deleted before the next which makes the whole affair even more complicated and prevents comfortable use of these languages.
Adding more languages without allowing them to be used properly is not beneficial.
An update restoring the original functionality would be appreciated.
Seriously considering a change of keyboard otherwise.
Microphone, for speech to text Respondida1 voto 3 comentariosSuddenly, when I'm using the microphone for speech to text, SwiftKey is inserting periods where I do not want them. Can insert it automatically when I pause? For even a second. . Does everyone see this? ? Like it put a? In it for me. And it's putting a men in places where I don't want them. This is how it looks when I speak.

Question about email domain fill list Respondida2 votos 3 comentarios
when entering an email address with Swiftkey, there's the key with the @-sign to the right of the space bar. When doing a long press, it offers a list of domain names (for me "@yahoo.com", "@hotmail.com" and "@gmail.com") for quick fill. Is there any way to edit this list? I would love to add a few entries to this list.
Getting used to SwiftKey - Basic features - Capitalization, Word Selection, More Suggestions, Compositing, Shortcuts Respondida1 voto 3 comentarios
I'm somewhat new to SwiftKey, as I have used Swype in the past. Even after it has been discontinued, it stayed on my old phone until now. Now, with a new Galaxy S10 (running Android 9), I tried the newest version of SwiftKey from the Play Store, but I feel like I'm missing out on how to use/find basic features, so I have to ask for a little help. :)
So, what I'm looking for:
- How can I increase the number of word suggestions from my swiping? I type in different languages simultaneously, so having only three suggestions means that I have to delete the word that I just swiped and swipe it again if the word I intentioned wasn't suggested (as there are more words available that I could have meant). Having more options to choose from (by scrolling the suggestion/prediction bar), makes the workflow a lot better and quicker.
- How can I capitalize a word that I just typed, especially when it's not in the dictionary yet? Currently, I have to go the text, go delete the first character, use the shift key, type the first character again. Again, that's bad workflow, so I'm looking for the key/shortcut/gesture to just capitalize the current/last word.
- How can I extend the current word? Say, I want to write "SwiftKey" but the keyboard doesn't know the word yet. Right now, I have to swipe both words, resulting in "swift" and "key". Now I have to capitalize both words (or press the shift key beforehand), go back to the text, delete the space inbetween them, put the cursor at the end of the text and continue. Again, really bad workflow. How can I, after swiping "Swift" make sure that the word gets extended by the next word I swipe?
- Bonus question: Are there keyboard shortcuts for selecting the current word, all text (ctrl-a, basically) as well as copy, cut and paste or navigating through the text via cursors?
Thanks in advance for your help, everyone! :)
Edit: Uh, also: How to write German and English quotation marks instead of inch signs? How to write a long dash? (QWERTZ extended)
Can't downgrade to older version via APK. To remove Bing search bar. Respondida0 votos 3 comentarios
Really not liking this new Bing search bar. I removed the app and downloaded an older apk from apk mirror. Just one or two .https://pnrstatus.vip/ versions behind. None of them will install however. When i hit the apk it says installing for a bit then it says "APK not installed". Only the current version will install on my galaxy Note 8 running android 8.0. Tried https://sarkariresult.onl/ multiple reboots, clearing cache and data for the app as well as clearing cache of the phone itself. Have they prevented downgrades somehow ? Any ideas how to remedy?Mobdro

Pb d'utilisation du dictionnaire personnel Respondida0 votos 3 comentarios
Sous Android Pie version 9.1, le clavier SwiftKey ne semble pas utiliser le "dictionnaire personnel" définit dans :
paramètres/langue et saisie/avancée/dictionnaire personnel
Si des abréviations sont définies dans ce dictionnaire, ces abréviations sont proposées quand le raccourci est saisi avec le clavier "Gboard" mais pas avec le clavier "SwiftKey"
Pouvez-vous me dire pourquoi ? Est un bug ou une fonctionnalité non supportée ?
Merci pour votre aide

Multiple language problem Respondida0 votos 3 comentarios
I have two languages enabled - Polish and English. But whenever I type an email in English (Gmail) even though it shows me suggested words in English, it highlights every word I type as incorrect, and if I actually do make a mistake and want to go back I can only delete the word or add it to dictionary, I can't correct it, even if I delete it to write it again it won't let me anyway because it will just highlight the next word and give me the two options again so I'd end up deleting the whole text, it's impossible to work like this, please help!
