Dynamic layout

The keyboard will learn how you hit the keys. That way systematic typos (for example L instead of I) can be corrected.

Implemented in current beta. Needs some time to learn your typing behavior though.

Janis could you please explain how the Dynamic Layout works ? Let's say i type the german "Ich". I then very often type "Ixh", but i only notice it one or two words later. When i then go back with the cursor and correct it, does Dynamic Layout take that in account ? Or do i have to correct the word before i finish typing it ?

Hi Ralph

The keyboard will only analyses the letters which are in the keyboard when it get's closed - for example after you sent the message. So if you mistype and correct the word afterwards that's no problem.

If there's sometimes still a mistyped letter that's also no big problem because it moves the centers slowly and it takes every type from the past into account.

I make a lot of mistakes still with Wrio - I'd call myself a good typer on keyboard (80+words/min) and usually I was very fast at typing on my cell as well. I'm using Wrio since about the middle of the campain and joined with Alpha access. I needed a few days to get comfortable with the layout (still not rocksolid on it) and now I still do the same mistakes. Mainly:

? instead of space

m instead of m

l (lower case L) instead of i

I didn't feel a difference since this "dynamic" layout was implemented. I was just thinking today of ditching the keyboard and go back to Swiftkey for the time being, until this is working properly for me. Or maybe it just isn't the right keyboard for me?

Hi Manuel

Dynamic Layout only corrects systematic errors but if you mistype quite randomly this feature won't work. In this case the autocorrection will have to find the word you wanted to type.

Right now we're working hard on implementing autocorrection as it's a really important feature and we're confident that we can release a first version at the end of the year.


By the way: Since 0.6.1 you can enable "Debug X on centers" to see the adjusted centers. Can you post a screenshot so we can have a look?


Best
