when I'm typing something some characters don't show, it's not any particular letter or number but it does happen frequently. For example, if I type "word" it may show as "ord". At first I thought I was just not actually touching the particular character that didn't show o I started (note: the word just before I in this sentence is SUPPOSED to be so but only the o is showing- that's exactly what I'm talking about!!) has anyone else had this issue with the iPad 3?
How do you select an autocomplete item on the iPad keyboard dock? I just got it and have a problem when typing an email. When I type in the first few letters of an address, the individual's name comes up. But tab doesn't complete the name. It inserts those first few letters only, not the email address. The dock keyboard doesn't work in web forms at all. The iPad on screen keyboard pops up when you select a field in a web form - even on this support site.

When I type, sometimes it starts typing capital letters as if the shift lock key is pressed. I hear a ping sound on the computer just before this occurs. I tried back spacing and it doesn't go back to lower case until I hit Shift again. I tried restarting the computer, changed keyboards and used a different USB port but it still does it.

My IPad is typing on it's own!It's "glitchy" in that it moved from one screen to the next without me touching it, like it's possessed!It moved itself to the search screen and started typing random letters, I actually see the letters on the keyboard being punched in. I'm freaking out. This seems to be the mother glove. PS doesn't do it all the time, just when it wants to. Also I've cut off and on, and tried to sync with itunes.
Sometimes I cannot type at all. I start typing it will type the 1st letter & maybe the 2nd and then stop I have to move the space bar forward type the next letter (sometimes it works & sometimes it doesn't). I then have to backspace it to finish the word this happens predominantly on the web when typing into a message board. Acer Aspire all in one Z5600 Windows 7 64bit
I have a problem with my ipad2 virtual keyboard. When I type on Safari or on some chat software like Facebook mobile my ipad2 virtual keyboard is sometimes sluggish and it will take longer than usual for a letter to show up on the screen and if I type fast that letter won't even show at all... It happens more with some keys than with others, especially with the y.Can someone tell me what the problem may be due to
The screen on my brand new iPhone 5S 32GB keeps blacking out intermittently. This sometimes happens I turn the phone from portrait to landscape, or sometimes when the keyboard is open and I try to type the letter ‘a’. Each blackout lasts less than a second and everything else appears to function normally, but it is impossible to use the keyboard in landscape mode sometimes as certain key presses black the screen out.� Info: iPhone 5s, iOS 7.1.1
I am having a very weird thing going on in Photoshop CS. Every time I turn on the type tool (horizontal) and try to use it, it won't type any letters, and instead when I strike the letter keys on my keyboard, it activates other tools based on their keyboard shortcut letters (such as L for lasso). I have tried resetting system defaults and still have this problem. Another weird thing that happens is that when I try to type letters, the canvas turns pink, and the letters turn white (this might be connected to the keyboard shortcut for flood fill)
with iOS 3 you could access special caracters like è é etc by pressing the e key when using the standard german keyboard on the iPad or iPhone.This is gone with iOS 4.21 - the only additional caracter is the letter ė.As my first name contains the letter é this is very bothersome as I need to work with an additonal (french) keyboard layout to type my name.Why where most of the letters removed, when will they be back?
My question may sound a little odd but I am used to using it on a regular PC keyboard."How do you delete a letter when typing on the ipad incorporated keyboard" ?

I have a Dell Inspiron E1505, XP OS. My computer has been working fine until recently. Suddenly, my touchpad started to lag. It starts to jump everywhere whenever I move it. My keyboard is very unresponsive, I can't even hold down a button for it to read it would read only once and sometimes it doesn't read the letter I type. It took me about 10 minutes just to type this whole thing up. To sum it all up .....
Sometimes when I type it wont fill in whatever field that I am typing in whether its a text message, search, or web page. The dictionary will come up as if I am typing the word but no actual letters will have been typed.

I have the Apple Keyboard and it messes up sometimes. Sometimes I will be typing and the onscreen keyboard will come out then in then back out again and so on. When it is out or even sometimes when it is not the Apple accessory keyboard doesn't work. its really a PITA. Well today I was typing and once again it started acting up. But then A message popped up on my Ipad. It said "An app is required for this accessory to work correctly. Would you like to down load the app now?" (Or something like that) I hit yes and it closed out Safari and opened the App Store, but when it opened it there was nothing there. It just brought me to an app Store page that had nothing on it. Does anyone else experience problems with they're keyboard? And is there really an app for it?
My daughter and I both got Eris' [Erii?] with Verizon's 2 for 1. I noticed while loading some stuff to hers last night though that when you type on the keyboard, you don't get the letters popping up (i.e. on mine, when I hit a letter on the keyboard, it pops up a bubble showing what letter I hit for a half second or so, this doesn't occur on hers).I've looked everywhere I can find but don't see anywhere to turn that on/off. Any suggestions?

My new iPad keyboard (i.e. the default virtual keyboard of iOS) when it comes up (slides up) it doesn't slide back in when the typing mode is no longer needed.� E.g. when I swipe all the way to the left and reach the search screen, the keyboard pops up, and when I swipe back to the home screen the keyboard stays up until I press the 'hide keyboard' button.� Info: iPad (3rd generation) Wi-Fi + 4G, iOS 5.1
In a previous post, I was complaining about the difficulties I encountered while typing on the iPad's chunky on-screen keyboard. Meanwhile, I discovered a great tip about this, the touch-hold-slide feature, which allows me to go to the symbol page, select a symbol, and return to the letters page, all with one motion. This feature is documented in the "iPad User Guide" only for uppercase letters, but not for digits and symbols.
My keyboard has stopped wanting to type any key back to back without a pause (whether it's a letter or delete or backspace). So if I'm typing a word with two letters that are consecutive, I have to pause or forget and backspace (which I can only do once also without a pause). It's also started this slight click/beep that happens usually in conjunction with the error although sometimes not. And, the click/beep isn't consistent (or at least I haven't found it's rhythm yet).
I've been noticing that sometimes when I type, I get some keyboard lag and it misses letters. There's no way it can't keep up with me, I mean I type fast.. roughly 100-120wpm, but not THAT fast? Other keyboard(s) have no problem catching me, it's just this Acer one seems to be laggy at times. This time around though, I have noticed that after I installed the Synaptics driver, it started happening. I wonder if it's related?

When I am using the onscreen keyboard on my iPad2, the input is sometimes getting duplicated (for example: if I press the letter 'N', instead of showing up once on the screen, it shows up as NNNNN).

I've got an iPad with a bluetooth keyboard. When I'm sitting at my desk, I set my iPad on a stand and I type on the bluetooth keyboard. Sometimes I pick up my iPad and carry it with me when I am away from my desk, but when I try to type something I realize that the on-screen keyboard is hidden. Is there any way to make the on-screen keyboard reappear aside from walking back to my desk and pushing the eject button on the bluetooth keyboard or disabling bluetooth altogether? Disabling bluetooth is annoying because I have to re-enable it when I get back to my desk, and pressing the button is inconvenient because I have to remember to push it before I leavee my desk (I can't just grab the iPad and go).

I have a bluetooth keyboard working with my iPad (in fact, I'm typing up this message with it now). But I took my iPad to another room, and when I went to a text area to type, it still thought I was connected to my bluetooth keyboard. Needless to say, I couldn't type, and so I had to turn off my Bluetooth in order to bring the virtual keyboard back up again. Is there a way to tell the iPad to bring up the virtual keyboard, even if the bluetooth one is currently connected? Information:

I got my iPad two days ago and I am experiencing several recurring issues with the touchscreen keyboard. The "home" apps at the bottom of the home screen are frequently unresponsive. also, when typing emails, I am deliberately only pressing one key, but four or five inputs show up on the screen. it makes typing a single sentence impossible. I also just experienced a "stuck" key, where the letter "C" was input over and over again until I reset the iPad.
When I'm in contacts and in portrait mode using the multitap keyboard, it doesn't work.

I started having an issue with my iMac typing in the letter 'V' in any field, whether in a browser or in a window even after I've unplugged the keyboard. I've tried restarting several times, but it's getting worse to the point that I can't even type my password in b/c strings of the letter 'V' keep erroring out each field. The letter 'V' isn't stuck in the keyboard, my keyboard doesn't need to be cleaned, I've run a disk repair and no errors are coming up.

When I first reboot my phone after a battery pull I notice all the letter sizes on the query and portrait (suretype) key board are the same size.However, after typing a few messages I noticed a difference in font size between certain letters.For example I'm looking at the phone now in portrait mode and see: GH key font size is large, but right above it the TY font is smaller. The JK is big, but the BN is small, The ER is big but the QW is small.In Landscape mode some examples:Q W E R are larger than T Y U I, the O and P are larger than A S D etc.. It just doesn't look very nice overall. I mean nothing is wrong and it doesn't really slow me down, but just looking at it doesn't look right.Sometimes if I hide the keyboard and bring it back up it's fine or if I return back to letter mode from number mode it's fixed.Overall it's like this most of the time though. I do hope this is something they address in a future OS. This is also happening on the multi-tap key board as I use that to enter my unlock password.
I just got this phone off Amazon market place, and when I flip the phone to the left to use the qwerty keyboard, the letter 'E' does not work correctly, sometimes it does work but other's it just spams my phone with the letters next to it (W and R). The thing which confuses me is when I go to use a menu on the same place it works fine, just not on the qwerty keyboard, also when I turn the phone to the right to use the qwerty keyboard on that side it seems to work fine.
all of a sudden tonight my keyboard is missing out letters when i type and when i go back and hit the key again it wont work but if i wait a minute or 2 it works but it happens with all the keys not just one in particular and sometimes now they seem to stick so if i press the letter "a" it will come out as aaaaaaaaa my trackpad is staring to go where it wants to even when i'm not touching it and also when i use 2 fingers to zoom i have to lift my 2 fingers off the trackpad twicee sooo that it actually works
I have had a strange issue for the past couple days. Sometimes when I type on the keyboard, no text is entered into the text box, but I see the letters "pop up".

I use my iPad to take notes in class, but my issue is that I type in outline format so the lack of a TAB key on the iPad keyboard slows my typing speed significantly.

Looking for a virtual keyboard that doesn't cover up the original screen when you are typing. I.E. if I'm typing something into a Google search box, I want to see the letters appearing in the search box, not some other box that I then have to send to the original application. Ideally it would also have a tab key on the main keyboard. Anything like this exist?
My aluminum keyboard will no longer pair with my iPad 3. The light on the keyboard flashes as it is supposed to but the iPad cannot find it.

I've already tried basic methods of resolving this issue i.e. resetting and unplugging and replugging the keyboard and my keyboard still won't type letters or numbers. The only kind of response I get by typing the keys is the keyboard will performing shortcut commands like save and open, etc. without holding control or alt, it does it when I press the letter keys by themselves.
when I am using the qwerty keyboard (not touch screen) it is either not responding when I press a letter, or after several presses, when it does eventually respond, it displays a letter or character different from what I am pressing. Its basically to the point where my keyboard is useless. I have to hit the same key at least 5 times before it shows anything. It will sometimes skip letters that I'm typing and just display the next character. for example, I can be typing SLOWLY, hitting one at a time, spelling t-e-x-t and it will show up e-t, or something along those lines. Ill backspace to go back to the beginning to add in the missing letter and Ill hit T over and over and over till it eventually shows up, or some random character will show up.

I noticed dictation only works if you have internet connection, and with only a select few languages (English, Japanese, but not Spanish when I tried).My guess is a recorded speech is digitized, compressed, sent to some servers (iCloud? or Wolfram Alpha?) for transcribing, then sent back and pasted to document (very impressive). It also seems to analyze the sentence to help find the correct word, instead of simply analyzing the audio.It is when trying to speak in a combination of numbers and letters, however, it fails.Any data entry into the iPad that switches between letters and numbers is somewhat cumbersome.Entering "A11 DEF V111 GHI V222 JKLMN Q9A" could possible be easier to speak than type.In non-rigorous testing, though, I get a weird assortment of results, even though I'm speaking one letter or number at a time. For example, sometimes my home airport, I19, shows up as "I19", "I 19", "EYE19", etc. I think the iPad doesn't know what to do with it since it's not a word.
You've got the iPad Dock keyboard and a normal iPad dock. I'm pretty sure I'm going to buy the normal iPad dock but I will also need a keyboard.The Apple site tells me you can also use bluetooth keyboards (which I don't have at home).Now I thought that it might be better to buy the bluetooth keyboard. Than I will just put the iPad on the normal iPad dock and I will use the bluetooth keyboard to type stuff.Now the bluetooth keyboard and the special iPad Dock Keyboard have the same price except there's one difference: the iPad Dock Keyboard isn't wireless but it's also a dock at the same time.Buy a wireless bluetooth keyboard or buy the connected iPad Dock Keyboard?
When I type an email, the letter pressed is not highlight as fast as I type on the keyboard, Most of the time, it delay until I press the next or 2,3 letters after the first one.

The title says everything: What accessories are you going to buy?For me, that would be the following:- iPad case- Apple Wireless Keyboard for both iPad and Mac.- iPad dockI will use the iPad case to save my iPad in, to use it up-standing (top picture) and to use it flat-keyboard-like (bottom picture).I'm going to buy the Apple Wireless Keyboard because 1) I don't have a bluetooth keyboard at all. 2) It's more portable than the iPad dock keyboard, and it's wireless. 3) Because than I will also be able to type in landscape-mode. With the iPad dock keyboard you'll only be able to type in portrait mode.
I hear people complain a lot about iPad's virtual keyboard or I hear them say that the keyboard dock is necessary for typing longer documents. I actually find iPad's virtual keyboard easier to type on than a tactile keyboard, and I was wondering if I'm the only one.I often see people typing in landscape mode on their iPad with only one finger. Why not just type the correct way as you would on a tactile keyboard? That's the way I type and my typing is faster on the virtual keyboard. I think it's easier and faster because 1) I don't have to press down on each key, just lightly and quickly tap my fingers on the screen, and 2) iOS corrects and auto-capitalizes so many words that I save time by not needing to hold down shift keys or enter periods or apostrophes all the time.
I just got my iPad and I discovered right off the bat that the popup keyboard needs an up down arrow keys for scrolling. Sometimes when I'm replying to a message in a forum, I need to scroll down to the bottom of the quoted text. But as far as I know the popup keyboard doesn't have an up down arrow keys so it's difficult to scroll. So is there a way to scroll up and down other than with the missing arrow keys?
I have a problem with my keyboard that only seems to have started since I installed the Hero firmware update (which has sped up the phone considerably). When I first got the phone I was really impressed by the Keyboard and the speed at which I could type. But since the update it is really slow and keys on the right edge of the screen (especially delete) don't register at all sometimes. I have calibrated the keyboard but it doesn't seem to make any difference.
I am unable to pair the iPad to the keyboard even though the keyboard is not paired to anything else and the code to pair does come up on the ipad2.
