Default Audible clicks on touchscreen keyboard

Please Login to Remove!

Is it possible to make the keys "click" when typing on the touchscreen keyboard? Turning keytone on in Keyboard settings does not seem to work.

Thanks in advance!

Not sure if this will help. I included the full document.


Turn on key tones
1. On the Home screen or in a folder, click the Options icon.
2. Click Typing and Input > Keyboard.
3. Select the Key Tone check box.
4. Press the key > Save.

Unfortunately that does not help. That feature has not worked for me in any of the Torch releases to date. It never turns on audible clicks when typing using the touchscreen keyboard.

Maybe with third party app,which I have not seen. That would be a good app to develop!

A little bit absurd that it's not a native feature of OS6...I noticed the same thing.

While they're at it why not change the existing keytones to a nice abrubt "click" (like iphone) rather than the old "boop" that is the only current option! Sound profiles are one of BB's best attributes, they should carry it over to their legendary keyboards.

A nice little vibration or something when you're using the virtual keyboard would be a nice enhancement too.

It was a nice feature, one of the few things I liked about my last (non BlackBerry) phone.

Battery killer or not I'd like to have the option. This really should be an option right out-of-the-box.
