[access-uk] Re: Typing capital letters on an E61

Blimey Andy is that what you have to do? (really laughing here.) I can text pretty quickly now, so I'll just stick with the normal method thanks. Phew! (smiles.)


Have fun.

Hi Carol -

Predictive text: Once you have this setting turned on, you can cycle between
it being on and off by 2 quick presses of the hash key. When you have
predictive turned on, just start writing your message, but only press each
key once, so to write hello, it would be 4 3 5 5 6, and you can type as fast as you like, because your not cycling through the letters. If you have TALKS set to speak words,then it will say the word it thinks you want, and if it's selected the wrong word from it's dictionary, then [and you have to do this
before putting a space after the word] press the star key to hear a
different word, each press of the star key will bring up a different word,
these words will only be made up of the number of letters you originally
keyed in, and only words that can be made up from the letters attached to
those keys on the key pad. When you hear the word you want, just press the
zero for a space, and it will have been inserted, and you can carry on. If
when pressing the star key brings you back to the first word in the list,
and you haven't heard the one you wanted to write, then press soft key one, which will temporarily take the keypad out of predictive text, allowing you to type in the word in the usual long handed way; once you've done this, and
before hitting zero for a space, press soft key one again, to accept the
word, and put you back in predictive text mode.

Writing this out, and no doubt reading it, sound like it's a lot of trouble,
but it really isn't, and I find that pretty much most of the time,
predictive text gives me the word I want, and only a couple of times in a
text message, might I have to either cycle through a short list of words to
get the one I want, or have to insert it the long hand way. You can still
use punctuation in the usual way when in predictive text too, but this time, before you press the star key twice, you need to put a space after the word,
doing this will still put the punctuation sign where you want it. Oh and
yes, you can still insert numbers with predictive text turned on by pressing
and holding the key for a second.

HTH -

Andy
