Information from the Iode.tech says that The keyboard (OpenBoard) supports spell correction, but my keyboard doesn’t for some reason.
Spell checker is On but it’s not working. It seems that there are no necessary dictionaries.
I have another phone and there is a menu item ‘Add-on dictionaries’ (Language & input → Keyboard Settings → Text correction → Add-on dictionaries), so there is no ‘Add-on dictionaries’ on my Samsung s10e running Iode 3.5-20230131-beyond0lte.
Please tell me how to download the necessary dictionaries for the spell correction to work.
There is no such menu item as “Add-on dictionaries” in IodeOS.
I assume that It’s a bit like with text-to-speech (TTS) which is also not in IodeOS. I’ve downloaded and installed TTS from the Aurora Store, but I don’t know how to download the dictionaries for spell correction.
If I understand correctly, you have the fourth item working with the Afrikaans language, right? It’s interesting because I can’t reproduce it.
I currently have a spell checker that works for the following languages:
English, Bulgarian, Danish, Dutch, French, Deutsch, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish,
Only the 1st and 4th items of the list work for the following languages:
@chrisrg could you please go to Languages & input → On-screen keyboard → OpenBoard → Languages and add Ukrainian language? Then open notepad and type ‘Піснч’. Don’t copy and paste! It may seem a little difficult if you are not familiar with the Cyrillic alphabet, but I’m sure you will succeed. Then hit the space bar. Has the word changed to the word ‘Пісня’? Then type something obscure like ‘рітґємїк’. Is this word underlined with a red line?
And yes, you are right, it is worth contacting the developers of this application. Although the app works fine on my other phone, there is an option to download additional dictionaries to make the spell correction work.
since today i’m experimenting with the original google keyboard gboard.
install the lite version of apkmirror (it’s trustworthy, the androidpolice team is behind it), then configure the desired languages, use the gboard once in the languages so that the dictionaries are downloaded, and then via the app settings or the iode blocker withdraw the network connections from the app so that it can no longer connect to google.
disable openboard in the keyboard settings, otherwise the gboard will not work properly.
also works without any problems in the shelter profile
maybe you will have fewer problems with the spell check in your languages. try it.
It turns out not, it looks and works exactly the same (except for the possibility to download additional dictionaries), but it’s not OpenBoard. My mistake. My old phone has AOSP installed on which OpenBoard is based.
I have already created a report about the lack of necessary dictionaries on the OpenBoard account on GitHub. Hopefully this will be implemented in future updates.
Thanks for your support Chris, you’ve helped me a lot!
