  1. Use Dragon Voice instead Google Voice

    Google Voice has some disadvantages when using other language than English: it cannot recognize punctuation marks if spoken.

    Dragon Voice service can do that and I've tested it using Swype with German and Romanian.

    It really helps me to dictate with minimal interaction with the touchscreen. It's very useful especially when driving or for the people with visual impairments.

    • Option to customize the secondary symbols on all keys

      I would like to be able to change the secondary symbols on the keys so that I can move the ,I? off of the period key onto another key that is more useful and place some other symbols that I don't use that often on the period key, such as |[]. This would be user customizable so each user could configure the secondary symbols according to their individual needs.

        • Add Individual Row Height to Layout Menu - Here's Why...

          Hi! I have an idea / dream feature which would help people with big hands use their little keyboards.
          Can you please make sure the right team receives it? Thank you!

          I would very much like to be able to access height and width slider to each row in the "customize your keyboard" menu? I have big hands and make the portrait keyboard tall, however I would like to be able to customize the size of each row so I can make the "word guess row" and my "arrows row" or the space bar row shorter too so I can…

          • Option to Widen the "A" and "Z" Keyboard Rows - Use the Extra Unused Space! : )

            I would love to widen the "a" & "z" rows to take up the empty space and get extra button width where I can. Thanks for your consideration!

                    • Option to make "Hold backspace" or "swipe left" delete only the last word when a two-word prediction was selected.

                      Hi. I use SwiftKey since the beginning, I liked most of the new features that were added over time and got used to them. My hands are big and I prefer small phones, so I choose most words from the prediction bar. I also prefer using the smaller keyboard size, so it uses less space on the screen.
                      When the multiple-word prediction was added to SwiftKey, I started to use this behaviour: Let's say I want to write "staying free", I aim to tap the prediction for "staying" but I fail (let's say I tapped a letter instead), then keep…

                      • Predictions include number row

                        I have the number row on top of my keyboard, but if I accidentally hit, say, '5', SwiftKey won't suggest words starting with the letters below ('t', 'y' in my case on a Swedish layout).

                        It's quite annoying and I hope that it is possible to make SwiftKey able to suggest words when a number is typed first in a word :)

                                I have a low - end phone with qvga display and there the keybo ard is very big. It is would be better if we can change the size of the buttons for example.

                                  • Improve switching to/from Dashlane Password Manager

                                    Recently started using Dashlane to manage passwords across multiple platforms. They have their own keyboard that can fill fields like username and password and others. It has greatly improved my password practices. But they can't touch SwiftKey suggestions for text.

                                    So problem becomes: How to easily switch between keyboards?

                                    I find Dashlane Keyboard and Google Keyboard both use a longpress-space-bar to bring up the 'Choose input method' menu. This lets me switch between those two keyboards without leaving the app.

                                    Please could you add "longpress-space-bar brings up the 'Choose input method' menu" feature to Swiftkey?

                                    If not, I will be…

                                    • Autocorrect 'off' needy

                                      It's quite disturbing (caused by Samsung ? Microsoft via samsung?) on a phablet to find growing mismatches on autocorrect in dutch (bullyservers in Ire?) but if no disable autocorrect in swiftkey i have to leave it behind. I have NO cloud 'on' for the sole reason it is intransparantly busy to 'in'. Without clear view about aspects, like 'out'. The 'in-no-out' policy =sucky. Distracting. If that kind of policy is prio over userlearning-at-users-timesaving, instead of the reverse, then swiftkey future is doubtfully. Sorry a hard key is more trustful than the primarily harvesting oriented soft key! Trust=1. Do not destroy…

                                      • Better recognition for tense

                                        "Joe sighed and reac-" [reaching] [reach] [reaches]

                                        If I am typing a sentence, and I already used one tense in the sentence, the next words in the sentence will probably use the same tense, as the predictions are failing to do in the above illustration. Please detect whether the writer is using past, future, present, etc. tense and weight words in that sentence accordingly.
