Other Comments: 

In the recent and NEW update to the Fleksy Keyboard - Happy Typing 3.1. The wonderful people of Syntellia have made a major step forward in bringing back the VoiceOver accessibility.

This is certainly wonderful news and we are so glad to see the functionality of the VoiceOver returning to the original app itself.

As the release note has mentioned. There have been a major improvements to the VoiceOver with in this version. However, it still has some rough edges to contend with. I do believe that from what I heard from Fleksy. They are aware of the problems and are working on an update for a few minor issues.

There are some reports that people are unable to hear back in what they have typed. Along with the not bing able to remove words from the dictionary. Plus, very minor things like the documentation is not update.

We would love to hear in what people think of the NEW update to the Fleksy app and what they have found that may be a problem. So lets help Fleksy in coming up with the list of bugs we would like to see resolved and corrected.

So, again! Many thanks to the Fleksy team in getting this back on the path for us!
