Smile [Q] Port Windows Phone 7 Keyboard or use the sounds to/with Android?

You could do that... you'd have to build the entire keyboard from scratch, build a dictionary that's as good as Windows' dictionary, and it'd likely still have the lag that most of the better keyboards on android have...

Nokia/WP7: Unmatched Quality.

Even if you put the sounds onto an android device, the trick that wp7 has is that it does not play the same sound each time you hit a key, it cycles through several tones. To get the android keyboard to sound the same you would have to find a way to copy that trick.

You could probably just skin a keyboard app on Android to look like the WP7 keyboard.

Default Works somewhat, need someone to try and fix it

I found WP7 sound files here
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=840898

I used free http://alternativeto.net/software/formatfactory/about
to convert wp7 keyboard sound file .wav to .ogg

with root access, mount R/W, replace stock files in:
/system/media/audio/ui/

KeypressDelete.ogg
KeypressReturn.ogg
KeypressSpacebar.ogg
KeypressStandard.ogg

KbdAccentPicker.wav - didn't use
KbdFunction.wav - sound the same as spacebar.wav
KbdKeyTap.wav - converted, renamed to KeypressStandard.ogg , KeypressDelete.ogg
KbdSpacebar.wav - converted, renamed to KeypressSpacebar.ogg

I haven't figure out what is the right converting setting so that new file would work correctly (bitrate maybe?). When type fast, the sound couldn't keep up. Hope someone can help!

Attachment has all the files needed, original wp7 & android file, and the converted & renamed .ogg

I notice the lag also happens when the settings are changed using Kii keyboard. I too wonder what is causing the delay and lag
