Fix keyboard problems in WP 8.1
Windows Phone 8.1 Preview keyboard has loads of stepback for some languages. Italian, French and Swiss keyboard are unusable compared to Windows Phone 8 keyboard.
There are also issues with the keyboard structure itself.
Please fix them before the final release!

No way to add new word in Greek dictionary as you can do with wp8.0 or English language

Make the keyboard layout universal through out apps. On some apps the microphone option is unavailable

The same in Czech, words with accented letters are sometimes ignored or pushed down in suggestions.
E.g. typing "pan" suggests 4 other longer words before "pán"

How about a tab key to cycle through fields while using the keyboard. Then you don't have to exit the keyboard to tap on the next field just to bring the keyboard up again.
Keyboard is incompete. Serbian and so on. Some letters are droped.

Also Slovakian keyboard is too narrow. English keyboard has much more space. And the Slovakian autocorrect doesn't work on every third word....
Make standard QWERTZ keyboard for slovenian language.
And make č, ž, š accessible by longpressing c, z, s.

Hello, I am concerned about the slowness of my favorite editor, I see that in April already, it says claims for Swiss French keyboard, a big problem QWERTZ, and to date 25 September 2014, the problem still exists. My question, will we have a usable keyboard.
Thank you for your attention and best regards.
This is a regression from WP8, it is a bug and not an enhancement, we shouldn't have to vote for it.
I think it is great that the space button is bigger and that Microsoft moved the comma button.
In french, Ça means that.
Va means go.
... For example when you type "ca", you want the word "ça" but it is automatically corrected by "va".
The Be-French keyboard is problematic.
Some very common words are not recognized...
Czech language has horrible autocorrect compared to wp8. Unusable.
Fix bug in keyboard,i use croatian and english keyboard in win phone 8.1 and set in croatian,but not send specific letters ČĆŽŠ,send cszs... set is croatian.. i delete english keyboard and work ok.. :(

The Swiss French layout was fixed in the Preview for Developers a while back. I am not sure about other issues reported here but I suggest people test. Better yet, a Microsoft moderator should update this item and lock it if the issue is now officially to be addressed.
