Text input with predictive text

So while developing yotti we encountered an issue with predictive text and inputting text. When you start typing a word, it will get underscore highlight so that you can pick from predictive text and replace said word. Problem is that it doesn’t report to text field any events of typed letters or cursor changing until you press space/complete a word. Even if you hint to disable predictive text, predictive text is disabled but behaviour persists. Has anyone encountered this before? Any workaround?
