Subject: [BCAB] Horrible new iPhone keyboard behaviour

Hi All,

 

I was attempting to create a new contact for the first time since the
upgrade to iOS 13.  I discovered while trying to fill in the first and last
names field, that the behaviour of the keyboard has changed.  As I moved my
finger on the screen to locate the desired letter, VoiceOver started
offering me words rather than letters.  Lifting my finger from the H key,
inserted the word Hungry rather than the single letter H.

 

I have a feeling I read something about a new style of predictive word
completion, but I don't remember where, or what were the details.  If
anyone's already got this sorted out I'd be very grateful to know how they
did it, otherwise, if I find out, I'll pass it on to the list, as it makes
life much more difficult when attempting to enter text.

 

Regards to all,

 

Tim
