This post will discuss known issues with the Kouri-Vini version 1.0.2, and an explanation of the issue.
- “The keyboard keys pop-up when I tap them, but I cannot see the letter.”
- On the standard iOS keyboard, the keys pop-up when you poke them. The reason is that (1) it gives the user good feedback that they have performed an action and (2) it is a way for Apple to offer various character options. Unfortunately, Apple limits custom keyboards so that they cannot pop up above the highest point of the keyboard. I cannot completely say why this limitation exists, but it keeps me from letting the keyboard work as well as theirs in this regard. I am going to consider ways to make this better.
- “When I select the keyboard in the settings, it says ‘Vini’ under it. Why?”
- I ask myself the same thing. It seems to come from when I enter the ISO639-1 code for ‘Louisiana Creole’ in order to declare Louisiana Creole as the primary language.
- “The buttons are different to press than I am used to on the Standard iOS keyboard, this messes up my typing.”
- I myself am aware as I use the keyboard regularly. This is something I am working on for the next beta release. This release is more of “proof of concept” to make sure the concept is good, the next release will polish it some more.
- “If I hold the ‘backspace/delete’ key, it doesn’t do anything.”
- Right now, I have only programmed ‘delete’ to delete one key. I found this myself and I simply need to add functionality so that it continues to delete text if the user holds the button.
- The next version will the hyphen “-” off of line #2 onto line #3, and have “ê” on from line #3 on line #2 with all the other vowels. (Thanks Oliver for pointing this out!)
I will track any other issues as they become known.
