Questions and Answers

Does Lumia 535 support Afrikaans predictive typing?

I need an Afrikaans dictionary for a Lumia 535 so that predictive typing will reflect Afrikaans words. Does such a thing exist?. I have tried: Changed keyboard to Afrikaans and added Afrikaans as a language

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

First of all, update your Lumia 535. The support may come out someday. As of now, the Afrikaans predictive text is not supported; but the two best things you can do besides checking for updates every now and then are disabling the predictive text feature or retraining Dutch predictive text.
