Bug Description


I test Ubuntu Touch (in dual boot, it's actually image Ubuntu 14.04 (r79) and I discovered a bug in auto-capitalization. My language is french.

What happens :
I enter some text with autocapitalization enabled. If the first letter contains an accent like "É" in "École", auto-capitalization doesn't disapeur : keyboard stay capitalized until you enter a "traditionnal letter". Example :
École --> ÉCole
Ééééécole --> ÉÉÉÉÉÉCole (this word doesn't exists it's just a test)

What should happen :
Autocapitalization should stop after the first letter, no matter if there is an accent or not

How to reproduce :
On a phone (keyboard related bug so it's not reproducible on a desktop-installed app) :
Enable auto-capitalization
go to any app where you can enter some text (like messaging app)
Try typing any word beginning with an accent like École. Autocapitalization will not disable after the first letter É but after the first not-accentuated letter (here the C --> ÉCole)

$ adb shell getprop

  * Implement capital letters for Pinyin keyboard, ignore auto-
    capitalisation and always display word ribbon when using Pinyin
    regardless of input hints. (LP: #1281384)
  * Switch back to normal character mode if in shifted mode after
    entering extended characters. (LP: #1264860)

  [ Łukasz 'sil2100' Zemczak ]
  * Quick-fix: play key feedback sound on key-press for all used keys.
    The fix is not really sophisticated, but these parts of code might
    change soon anyway (LP: #1306160)
