Jeff’s “Tremor-Friendly” Smartphone/Tablet Keyboard Recommendation

After a lot of experimenting, I’ve concluded that for me, with my tremor, the AI.Type (click for website) keyboard, available for iPhones, iPads, and Android smart phones and tablets, is the most “tremor-friendly,” customizable, aftermarket keyboard currently available.  It is free for the first 10 days to check out, after which it costs the princely sum of $3.99 if you want to keep all of its goodies. 

Hopefully, one of these days, Google, Apple, or somebody else will design an even more tremor-friendly, voice-driven input technology, but until that day, this will probably be the keyboard that I continue to use.

In case you’re interested, these are what I find to be the most tremor-significant AI.Type settings, listed by their respective Settings tabs, that I like best:

PREDICTION

Personal Shortcuts  - I love this feature. They start you off with a bunch of shortcuts that you may or may not find useful, but you can quickly customize it to make it your own. For example, if I type in my initials followed by a space, AI.Type automatically types in for me all four lines of my full name, address, city state zip, and phone number.  Wow, it just saved me a whole lot of typing!

Enable Swipe Input - For my tremor, I just can’t use swipe input so I keep this option unchecked, but if it works for you, it certainly is available.

Enable prediction and correction Check

Word Suggestions Settings...
            Show Word Suggestions – Check
            Auto-Correction  - Check
            Auto-Completion – Check
            Enable Cloud Base Prediction – Check

LOOK & FEEL

            Bottom Row Keys...
                        Show voice-to-text key – Check!!! I use this terrific voice-to-text feature all the time!  It is shockingly good.  It is SO MUCH FASTER and MORE CONVENIENT than manual typing!
                        Show comma and context-shortcuts key – Check
                        Show punctuation key – Check
                        Show edit-utilities key – Check, be sure to try this out for some very helpful tools!
I leave all of the other options here unchecked, but your choice.

            Show cursor tracker on keyboard - My tremor won’t allow me to use this feature so I leave it unchecked, but if you find it useful, Check it!

Display Top Row – Check! I find this top row very helpful. Be sure to cycle through its various options by pressing the “...” on the far right of the Top Row.

            Top Row Height – 100%

Well, those are my favorite features of my (currently) favorite iPhone/iPad/Android keyboard.  Play around with the many settings for this or whatever keyboard you like, and see what works best for you and your tremor.

  2. Only a few years ago, not many people knew about great kids tablet. You could see the look of surprise and wonder when people saw the tablets in the show rooms. But now, tablets are a talk of every town.

  4. Smartphone has another advantage over mobile phones that is you have to get an internet connection on mobile phones whereas in smart phones it is an inbuilt feature.

  5. Uncharted 5 will be unbelievable if Cassie came in as Nate's replacement! As the daughter of Elena and Nathan, she has all the resources she will ever need to become the next treasure hunter in the family. And having her as the protagonist will ensure that we get to see Nate, Elena, and everyone else in at least some capacity. Uncharted 5 Gameplay

  13. The iPhone 8 is a fraction bigger than its predecessors, but close enough that iPhone 7 cases fit perfectly. The big change is that the aluminum back has given way to glass, making it slightly heavier in hand. Check out iPhone 8 reviews by C. Mint.
