    I looked through the keyboard settings as well as the Cortana settings. I can't find anything to improve the keyboard.

    Serttings -> Language -> KeyboaRD -> Other settings / advaced -> scroll full down -> Enable "Send to Microsoft ..."

    "Send Microsoft info about how I write to help improve typing and writing in the future". My understanding is that this simply sends telemetry data to Microsoft which they collect in a giant pile that they might use one day to improve their logic. This does nothing for immediate improvement.

    Your own opinion. The option about telemetry you are talking about is another in Feedback section ;) and you can disable it if you are not an insider.
    The improve wryting instead make word flow working. Try yoursefl

    I can't see why this keyboard needs to learn at all, on 8.1 it worked immediately and was way more accurate. I also use an Android phone for work, and that didn't need to learn anything either (using SwiftKey). MS need to open the keyboard up to 3rd parties, I'd happily pay for Swype or something similar that just works.

    No, it's not opinion. That's the way it works. That option does nothing to improve the current experience.

    I believe the keyboard does learn but it takes a lot longer than you think it should - if it cannot recognise that I'm swiping recognise after 15 times, then there's an issue.
    it has issues recognising plurals if the plural ends in "s" such as lights or novels

    Same here. Swipe on WP8.1 was amazingly good, WP10 is pathetically bad. I can only assume they started from scratch.
    I agree 1,000 percent! This is another issue with W10M that angers me to no end. Wordflow in WP8.1 was perfect, nay, downright telepathic, the keyboard we're saddled with in W10M is dumber than a lobotomized turkey.

    I'm with you on this one - though not as exaggerated as you of course

    I have been wondering the same thing. I'm specifically on this thread because I've been thinking that ever since I did the Redstone update my swiping experience has absolutely sucked. I had a pretty good experience before that, even on W10M, but ever since the update it has been noticeably horrendous. I've been wondering the same thing you asked. How could it get so much worse and please God tell me there is a solution. It is BAD.
    I've been wondering if it has something to do with opening up Cortana to more countries or something. I swear, half of the suggestions made for some of my words are gibberish or make no sense at all. Some of them aren't even words. I didn't have that problem before the update. Is there a way to add words to the word flow recognition? There are some words that no matter how many times I attempt to swipe it, it never shows up as an option. And, although Word Swipe used to seem like it learned from my communications, my recent experience says it isn't learning anything. Anyone know what is going on?

    We can only guess at what's going on over there. We need a guy on the inside.

    The swipe keyboard on W10M is the worst and it doesn't learn a thing as mine is still bringing up the same words that make no sense since the day I installed it, incredibly frustrating. Outside of words showing up with letters that I didn't even touch, or swiping words not even in context to what is being swiped, it loves to use "ok" for almost anything in that area. Whether I type I'll, I'm, in, on etc I always get "ok", of all words "ok" because that is a word that is often used in any paragraph. Oh yea, here is a crazy one...typing I'll not only triggers OK but also UP even though U and P are not touched in the swipe.

    We have the same exact issue - I'll gives ok 95% of the time

    And then there are letter combinations like di, du, wo, woo, ne, what are these?

    Cortana is still in the same number of countries as before, 13 and no more.
