We could have much more, but
Raul, We are sorry you feel
I have no doubts on your
Hi Raul, have you actually
I have found the update works
Hi all,I was just in contact
@alex Please bear in mind
Hi, I can appreciate all
Pretty cool updates for those sighted people. They keep pumping out great updates for those with vision.
What's New in Version 3.0.1
- Added support for saving dictionary words
- Improved memory footprint
Introducing Fleksy in Tweetings!
Today Tweetings 2, a popular and accessible Twitter client app, integrated Fleksy SDK.
We wanted to take a moment and note what this means for the VoiceOver community, in ways that will become apparent in the coming days:
- This is the first fully accessible integration using our main Fleksy app (not the VoiceOver version).
- It is the first visible evidence of us restoring full accessibility into our main app and SDK. More to come in this area.
- Tweetings supports 10 languages, including English, German, French, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Turkish and Greek. Most of these languages have never been released for Fleksy VoiceOver users before. We’ve put a lot of work to introduce so many new languages, for all our users.
- The Tweetings team have done an awesome job making their own app accessible, so we recommend you try it.
- All apps that integrate Fleksy SDK going forward will be equally accessible!
- To enable Fleksy in Tweetings 2 – and all upcoming apps that integrate the latest version of Fleksy SDK – follow the helpful AppleVis guide created by awesome Fleksy user @JaffaStar (or Paula in AppleVis): http://www.applevis.com/guides/ios-ios-apps-iphone-voiceover/enabling-fleksy-keyboard-tweetings2-app#comment-24846
You will be seeing more updates for Fleksy VoiceOver users in the coming weeks and months, so stay tuned!
Full accessibility restored!
Today, we are pleased to announce full accessibility is restored in our main app. Get the update and try it yourself: http://fleksy.com/app
We are extremely excited for this and I wanted to share some thoughts here from our related blog post (full read: http://fleksy.com/journey-towards-accessibility-we-are-home/).
"We had committed to reach this milestone in 6 months, but we’ve worked twice as hard and we are delivering in less than 3 months.
The new, fully accessible Fleksy app has some more benefits especially for VoiceOver users, which we worked extremely hard for:
- Type in 8 new languages. Our sighted users have seen these introduced recently, but they had not been made available in the VoiceOver app.
- From now on, every new language introduced will be automatically available for all users.
- Every new iOS SDK partner now gets a fully accessible SDK. This means, you will be able to use Fleksy in all these new apps! Already, Tweetings 2, GV Connect, and 1Writer have updated to our accessible SDK. Our ambition is for a full system wide accessible keyboard, and new apps are coming online every day. Please tell your favorite apps about us.
Transitioning back to Fleksy:
- The app has been completely overhauled for better user experience for all users and to better compliment Fleksy’s increased availability in other apps.
- Type at the bottom part of the screen. Similarly to Fleksy in other apps, typing in the new accessible Fleksy app is registered only in the keyboard area – the same area the system keyboard would occupy. This way, you can still interact with the rest of the app, above the keyboard.
- Support for 10 languages: English, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Turkish. Download yours in Settings.
- Your settings, language and dictionary words will sync across all apps that implement the latest version of our Fleksy SDK. Your Fleksy VO learned words will also carry over automatically.
- Fleksy now uses the default iOS share menu for sharing your text, located at the top right.
- Swipe left and hold has been temporarily disabled as we resolve some bugs around it.
- Swipe up with two fingers currently does nothing. Tap at the top part of the screen to reach menu items.
- Familiar features may be missing. Fleksy has seen a lot of changes in the past 6 months. Expanding to a broader audience and more apps has allowed us to re-evaluate all features and focus on the ones that compliment Fleksy in its current state best. Do you miss a feature? Others might be too, so post a new idea in our feedback forums.
We know there are still a few rough edges and bugs in today’s app, which we will fix with updates. But we couldn’t wait to make it available to you nonetheless. Please let us know if you find things we missed in our mad rush to launch this as quickly as we could.
We won’t immediately retire the Fleksy VO app, just to be sure we have a smooth transition. But you can go back to the main Fleksy app with immediate effect.
And a final thought:
We know separating the two apps caused anger and frustration to many in our early community. We have worked really hard to restore this trust, not with words, but with actions.
We are truly hoping that today we can turn a page and count on the support of the VoiceOver community to bring Fleksy, a technology we invented, to more apps, more devices, and more users. It won’t be possible to work so hard, and for such an ambitious goal, without the support of the visually impaired community behind us.
Thank you, and Happy Typing

iPod Touch 4G on iOS 6.16
After reading this, I sprinted to the iTunes listing to see if iOS 6 was supported. I cheered when I saw it was.
I downloaded and installed the update.
On my Touch. it crashes back to the home screen almost immediately.
I cleared out my task switcher and rebooted, but the same thing happened.
I deleted the app from the Touch and reinstalled. Same thing. It crashes back to the home screen.
Thank you I love this news! Going to download it now!
And now is when I come and I
And now is when I come and I proudly swallow my previous comments.
Thanks very much.
You guys are just simply incredible
I've said it before and I'll say it forever, you guys are the perfect example of how every company should be. Now go get some sleep, drink plenty of water, get a massage, go to the beach, take care of yourselves. You're awesome!
Version 3.1 Help and SuggestonsIn the recent and NEW update to t
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!
Thanks everyone - yes, please
Thanks everyone - yes, please let us know about any bugs and we'll work them out. Brand new feedback mechanism in the app too so you can reach us directly. Thank you.
PS: We already know about the outdated instruction, and working on it.
Sort of unrelated question
IT is great that you guys have brought the accessibility back to the app. My question is where can we find a complete list of apps that are including Fleksy as an alternative keyboard? Thanks.
Apps with Fleksy
You can find a live list of apps featuring Fleksy inside our own app: Select Options and then Apps with Fleksy. You can also visit http://fleksy.com/appswithfleksy from any browser (smile)
Not sure what I am missing as I just downloaded the new and improved all in one accessible Fleksy and seem to be getting stuck in the menus no way to actually start typing and when I go in to options and click start typing nothing happens. Not sure if I got a buggy version or if the app wasn't ready to be merged.
Living proof Fleksy iOS keyboard
I have a jailbroken iPhone 5s, and with the tweak called, "Fleksy Enabler,"this new Fleksy works well across the board of IOS. I 'm using the tweak called, "Fleksy Enabler," which make Fleksy seems like very closed as a native iOS keyboard.
Great work guys, although there are still some minor bugs I have notice, but they are tolerable. I just wish the spelling words feature would be back on the next update.
I have noticed the Settings button takes you to several options, a lot of which either don't work with Voiceover or the button labels don't give you a clue what they do.
Responding to Blindgator
I had this problem too. Remember that the fleksy keyboard is now only located at the bottom of the screen where the actual iOS keyboard would be. Did you try tapping down there or were you using it like the old versions of Fleksy?
I Guess It's Just No Longer For Me
Glad to see that Fleksy has reintroduced accessibility in to one app, as I think that is great, but for some reason I guess I am just so used to typing on the old Fleksy that now typing only on the bottom part of the screen I rarely get a word right. If you have the time and patience to reprogram yourself to type in this bottom part I am sure you will love the app, I think though for me I am just so over this app and all the headaches and changes. Good luck to them, and who knows maybe I will take the time to adjust at least I have the option, but for me bluetooth keyboard is the way to go.
Hello it's nice to be able to
Hello it's nice to be able to use this app again. It's somewhat odd, though, that when backspacing, VoiceOver sometimes reads the word before the word being deleted. Wondering if I'm the only one lk seeing that.
If someone could tell me is it possible to enter punctuation like the quote, at sign, apostrophe, etc. Anymore? I don't see a way to enter symbols mode, if so, how is this done?
Same issue as Blindgator
With the new Fleksy, it's rare for me to actually manage to get a word right. I also had a weird experience, while trying to post in Tweetings 2, where I did some sort of swipe gesture, and Fleksy deleted everything I'd written. Once it was all gone, it got stuck making the sound it makes when the last character is deleted, and no amount of touching or swiping would make it stop. Closing Fleksy itself did nothing, and the sound didn't stop until I closed Tweetings 2 from the app switcher. So I haven't given up on Fleksy, but I'm also not having much luck with it either; for now, I find myself reverting back to Fleksy VO.
Known issues and how-to
Hey all, thanks for your feedback!
As we are working to resolve pending issues, I am listing the known ones and some differences in behavior from Fleksy VO.
Known Issues that will be resolved:
- Swipe left and hold is currently disabled in the main app.
- Swipe left and hold may start deleting indefinitely in other apps like Tweetings. This is why we temporarily disabled the function in Fleksy app (until we fix it).
- It is not possible to capitalize or Enter at this time.
- To read back the typed text, select Options menu and then Options menu again. A faster way will be introduced.
- When swiping left to delete, VO will read the previous word, not the one that was actually deleted. We will change the behavior back to say "Deleted word"
- Accuracy will be improved further.
- Instructions are outdated.
- To go to symbols, swipe left or right with 2 fingers.
- Swipe up with two fingers does nothing at this time. To go to the menu, tap at the top part of the screen and navigate with VO to Options, Settings or Share.
- Favorites, Reply links, Raise to speak, Spell words, Lock orientation and Export dictionary features have been removed.
- The share functions don't clear the text automatically anymore.
If a feature you have been enjoying is on the list, please let us know you would like it back by creating a new Idea or voting existing ones at our feedback forum: http://feedback.fleksy.com/forums/239155-fleksy-keyboard-for-ios
As Fleksy evolves into more than an app we are re-evaluating all features from zero.
Thank you for the feedback!
Thank you for the feedback.
Thank you for the feedback. We have discovered this crash and are working on the fix for the next release, so soon you will be able to use Fleksy on your Touch running iOS 6.
I downloaded the Fleksy app. because it was excessible again. But I am having the same problem as a few others. I am unable to get to my keyboard. It will not let me out of the menue list. So I am unable to do any kind of typing.
Sorry I am using the iPhone 5c.
Returning to Fleksy Keyboard from the Options Menu list
If you are running iOS 6, you can return to the Keyboard from the Options Menu by double tapping the Options Button. We are working on a fix so that this matches the implementation on iOS 7, where you can return to the Keyboard from the Options Menu by pressing the Start Typing Button.
Copy and clear
One great option that Fleksy VO had was the "Copy and Clear" when pressing the Home button. This option would be much appreciated.
Please bring back the copy and clear function.
I mean this next sentence to sound blunt.
It was moronic removing the copy and clear function as an option.
Copy and Clear Function
We are working on adding Copy and Clear to the Fleksy app for a future release, as well as several other features.
It will be good to have copy and clear back.
One more observation to keep in mind: dictation gets better on IOS all the time. Any keyboard is only really useful when I am somewhere where I can't talk to my phone. Under these circumstances I need/want entering text to be as quick and intuitive as possible.
Consequences for an app like Fleksy: keep it simple, clean, smooth, and fast to use.
bringing back spell words
Hello Brandon, in addition to bringing back features missing from the app, I would really appreciate it if you could add the spell word toggle again in settings. As I am a hearing in pared user, I found this feature to be invaluable for me when checking if a word is what it is by the addition of the spelling of it by Voiceover.
Again, as others have commented and am just confirming.
VO doesn't announce the previous deleted word. I must admit I was confused when I saw this behaviour.
Raise to speak isn't working for me. Therefore, when I put my hand near the speaker grill nothing happens.
I am using an iPhone 5 running 7.1.1
If there are any other quorkes that I find, I'll let you know here.
Having said the negative though, I am pleased that the mainstream app is back onto the path of becoming accessible again and as of all things, at times they got to get worse before they can become better. Something like that anyway.
I will continue to use the VO versions for now but will certainly keep trying the mainstream app and provide you guys feedback where given as you continue to improve with the experience for VO and sighted a like in up-coming versions.
Do keep up the good work! :)
Confused About A Couple Of Things
I am having trouble getting to the symbols in the latest Fleksy app. I read in this thread that you have to swipe left or right with 2 fingers but this is not working for me. I'm doing my swipes at the bottom of the screen since that's where the keyboard is now. What am I missing? Also, how do you get to numbers? Any help would be appreciated. Keep up the great work with Fleksy. At the moment I have the new version as well as the Fleksy VO app and I just switch between them. I love what you have done with the main app. Can't believe you got it fixed in a relatively short period of time.
Hi, I just guess where the
Hi, I just guess where the letters are, but most of my guesses are not correct
flexy with twitterrific?
Hi all. just asking. will the Flexy SDK be supporting twitterrific? if so, when, and if not, is there a way where I can intigrate Flexy in apps that don't have it supported yet? thanks all.
Earl, one question I can answer
Earl, I can answer your question about numbers. When you do the two finger swipe to the left or right to bring up the numbers/symbols keyboard, the numbers are aligned like they are on the iOS keyboard; that is, a row of 1 to 0 from left to right on the top row of the keyboard. I hope that helps.
Accessing numbers and symbols, and other issues
Daniel - thanks for your feedback. We are aware of these issues, and are currently working to fix them and add features. We plan on adding the spell word feature, Voice Over announcing the deleted word, raise to speak, and more functionality in coming releases. It takes some time to develop these features in the app and insure that they are bug-free, but it is definitely one of our priorities.
Earle - You should be able to swipe left on the keyboard with 2 fingers to access numbers and symbols, and swipe left again to access secondary symbols. (you can also swipe right with two fingers to access these as well) I have just tested this again on a few devices and it is working properly. If it still doesn't work for you, you can share your device and OS information with me so I can help troubleshoot more effectively.
Jonathan Candler - our Fleksy SDK certainly can support Twitterrific, but it is up to the Twitterrific developer to integrate it into their app. We would love for Fleksy to be in Twitterrific and many other apps, but those app developers need to make that decision. We have made our SDK very simple to integrate for developers so that they will want to add Fleksy, but you can also help push developers to add us by contacting them via email, twitter, and other channels and expressing your wishes. Many apps have integrated Fleksy all because of our passionate users! If app developers see a benefit, they will add us.
It Is Working Now
Thank you for your assistance. I completely closed Fleksy and even took it out of the app switcher. After I reopened the app I was able to swipe and get the numbers and symbols to come up. I have noticed that there are times when I have to flick right twice to get word suggestions. Has anyone else seen this? I also have a problem with speech cutting out at times when it is reading me word suggestions. Just wondering if I'm the only one seeing these issues.
Had all of the same problems you describe.
Earl, you are not the only one.
Love having accessibility back in the original app, but...
I am definitely loving the new fleksy, and I appreciate everything the developers have done to make it this way. The one feature that I really miss is the lock orientation. I like to lock it into landscape and have a more spread out keyboard. I'm also experiencing the issue where voiceover doesn't say the word I deleted, it says the previous word instead. I also have questions about some of the toggles in the settings:
1. What is fast delete?
2. What is the spacebar row?
Thanks to the developers for all of their hard work on restoring accessibility to fleksy.
Going to a new line.
I love the new app. Thanks to the developers for all your hard work. I can't seem to find the new line button though. Can you please tell me where it's located on the keyboard?
Feedback and new feature development
Samantha - thank you for your feedback, and we are glad you appreciate our efforts! We are aware of issues like the "deleted word" not being announced, and are working on the fixes for future updates. For other feature suggestions, like lock orientation, you can vote on them at http://feedback.fleksy.com/forums/239160-fleksy-vo-for-ios. The features with the highest votes will be prioritized. Regarding your questions about the toggles in Settings, Fast Delete is a default setting in VO Mode, allowing you to delete a word at any point by swiping left. Spacebar row is automatically disabled in VO Mode since it is used by those who prefer to use the spacebar instead of swiping right for space.
Diana - currently the Fleksy app does not have a button for new line in VO Mode (in Fleksy VO this is swipe down with two fingers). This feature, as well as several others, is one that takes some time to develop. Please submit an idea and/or vote on features at http://feedback.fleksy.com/forums/239160-fleksy-vo-for-ios. Thanks!
At this point it is unclear if any of the issues that we are having with VoiceOver have been addressed in this version. So if you have seen any VO improvements please leave your comments below.
