    Hi I got such a nice quick reply on my last question I thought I'd try again

    As I mentioned in my last post I am handicapped and always looking for ways to make things easier for me. One problem I have is with the keyword. I still have partial control of one hand, although sometimes my fingers lock up and the hand becomes a fist. When this happens my control over how long and hard I press a key leads the keyboard to put an alternate letter/symbol on the screen.

    Is there any way to restrict the keyboard to selecting the displayed key and not an alternate?

    Thanks again

    Which keyboard are you using? In some keyboards you can set the delay time when you long press on a key. In Google keyboard, for example, go to settings, language & input, select keyboard, advanced, key long press delay. Set it at the highest value and see if it helps.

    Not sure if that option is included in the stock keyboard. If not, you could try Google keyboard or, even better, SwiftKey.
