Samsung compatibility

Some Samsung devices exhibit issues when enabling accessibility services like Type Machine. These issues are caused by bugs in Samsung's operating system and are out of our control. If you encounter any issues, you can contact us for a full refund.

Here is a list of some possible issues you might encounter:

Enabling Type Machine requires me to disable features

You may be prompted to disable multi-window or other features when enabling Type Machine. You can usually re-enable these features after enabling Type Machine.

Enabling Type Machine disables the keyboard language switch

This is a bug in some versions of Samsung's built-in keyboard app. Unfortunately there is no workaround. You may consider installing another keyboard app such as Google Keyboard from the Play Store.

Enabling Type Machine also enables "Talkback" text-to-speech

On some older devices enabling an accessibility service such as Type Machine will also enable text-to-speech feedback primarily meant for vision-impaired users. For example, opening a folder in the home screen may result in an audible "Folder opened" message.

In our testing, this issue is limited to older devices running Android 4.2 or lower. For this reason, please make sure you have the latest software updates installed.

As a workaround, you can disable TTS functionality:

  1. Go to the Settings application and find the Accessibility section,
  2. Ensure that "Talkback" is OFF.
  3. Go to the Applications section in the Settings app,
  4. Find Google TTS and disable it.
  5. Find Samsung TTS and disable it.
  6. Find any other TTS apps and disable them.

Note that this will disable all text-to-speech functionality on your phone.

Input collection in some Samsung apps doesn't work

Input collection may not work in some built-in Samsung apps. See the list of apps with known issues.

Other issues

Samsung has a huge variety of different devices all running slightly different software. For this reason, we don't have an exhaustive list of possible issues and it's impossible for us to guarantee compatibility.
