Braille Screen input crashing while deleting a word or going to the new line



Whenever your using Braille screen input it will crash when you go to the new line or if you are trying to delete a word.

Steps to reproduce

To reproduce this bug use the rotor until you get to Braille screeninput.
Then type anything then if you try to delete a word by swiping 2 fingers to the left or swiping 2 fingers to the right Braille screen input will randomly crash and it will say stopping Braille screen input.
I am experienceing this on my Iphone 11.

Bug First Encountered

iOS/iPadOS 14.2

Device(s) bug has been encountered on


How often the bug occurs



There is no workaround for this.
I suppose every time Braille Screen input crashes you could use the rotor and get back to Braille Screen Input.

I also have experienced this on my iPad mini 5. It seems to happen only if I use BSI for a certain amount of time then it wont let me go to the next line and it stops it. then I have to use the roter to get back in to it.

I have experienced this bug quite often on my iPhone SE 2020, but not every time I erase a word. However, when Braille Screen Input suddenly stops, I simply turn the rotor back to it and carry on.

I think the problem might have to do with the fact that it's now possible to use the two-finger scrub to exit BSI. Seems to me that iOS is misinterpreting a two-finger swipe left (delete a word) or right (go to a new line) as a scrub gesture.
