L doesn’t work

Whenever I type L, undo pops up and I can’t do anything. I see this is an issue written about on Nov 14. FIX IT! It is now sept 2020 and it still isn’t fixed. When will you finally do something?

Workaround for three finger letters

If you tap three fingers at the same the IOS glitch of showing the undo/copy/paste bar does still appear. But, if you try “drumming” your fingers quickly. It does work and registers the correct letter. Think of drumming your fingers when you’re bored or trying to think. All of your fingers don’t hit at the same exact time, they go in quick succession. I’ve only had the app today so not a lot of experience with it. So far so good once I figured that out.

Does not work with new IOS update

Ever since the new IOS update, none of my Braille apps are working. Any time I use three fingers to write a Braille letter, a bar comes up on the top of my screen giving me the option to “paste, cut, undo, redo,” and will not allow me to type the letter. I was in contact with the accessibility team at Apple for several weeks as they were trying to figure out what was happening, and their engineers determined that it was an issue with the apps themselves, not the IOS update. PLEASE fix this bug. I’m currently learning how to type Braille for my masters program, and am now unable to practice as much as i need to since I can’t carry my Brailler everywhere with me.
