Touch assist

Touch assist

In the same way as the controller assist described previously, allow people who are unable to execute complex or multi-touch gestures on touchscreens to perform them using simple taps, through a predefined menu of possible actions.

As with controller assist, it would open up many more experiences than would otherwise be available to someone with limited ability to perform accurate, sustained or simultaneous gestures. Again, as with controller assist, this would be particularly powerful when combined with switch accessibility.
