Issue with correcting word or phrase

When I need to correct a word or phrase, Lipsurf inserts the new word with improper formatting. Here’s an example:

Original:

This is an example of the software that I recently purchased.

I decide I want to change the word “software” to “program.”

  1. If I select word and say program, it changes the word but inserts an extra space:

This is an example of the program that I recently purchased.

  1. If I select word, delete it, and then say the new word, it inserts an extra space in front of it and no space after it:

This is an example of the programthat I recently purchased.

I would like to be able to select any word or phrase and simply talk over it to correct it.

The issue isn’t displayed well here, but test it in Google Docs and you’ll see the issue.

I see what you’re talking about. I’ll put this improvement in the next version.

Fixed in v2.6, thanks for the report!

I don’t see that this has been fixed.

When I double click on an incorrect word and then talk over it it still adds a space right before the new word.

So, you end up with two spaces between those words.

You’re probably on an old version. To update:

  1. Go to chrome://extensions
  2. Enable “developer mode”
  3. Click update

No, it still doesn’t work on the latest version:

Dictate the first sentence, then double click on the word “software” and say “program.”

It will change the word but insert an extra space:

It’s working for me. Where are you dictating the text? Do you see v2.6.0 in the plugin’s options: (chrome-extension://lnnmjmalakahagblkkcnjkoaihlfglon/views/options.html#plugin-TextInput) like this:

ah, I see the issue is only on Google Docs now. Sorry about that! You’ll see that it works in other places (like this forum reply box) I will fix it in google docs right away.

Yes, I see google docs is the issue. In the meantime you can see it working here, and elsewhere: https://www.editpad.org/

There is also a problem in gmail:

After dictating the sentence, I double click on “software” to select it and then say “program.”

Here’s what happens:

Thanks for your patience Steve. I’ve fixed both the issue in Gmail and Google Docs in v2.6.1 which I’ve just released a few minutes ago. If you try a manual update in 10m or so, it should work!
