Comment Entry FormComment Entry - Landscape

The first thing you’ll notice now with the comment entry is that as soon as you tap the Comment Tracker to begin an entry, the table cell morphs into a modal dialogue that includes the comment display area, the keyboard and an upper toolbar. This helps to isolate the comment entry area and prevents inadvertent touches outside the comment window which previously ended the entry session.

Along the toolbar, you’ll see four buttons. On the left is a “Clear” button which will clear the contents of the comment window. In the center, you’ll see a Font Size increase and decrease button. And, on the right side, you’ll see the “Save” button to end the comment editing session.

For those of you with an iPhone 4S, you can use the new Siri technology to create your comment via Siri’s dictation capabilities. If you look at the keyboard in the images above, you’ll see the small Siri Dictation microphone just to the left of the space bar. To start dictation, tap the mic button and begin speaking. You’ll see the Siri indicator blinking as it accepts your speech input. Once you’re done speaking, Siri will generate the text from your voice input. Note, an active internet connection is required for Siri functionality.
