hardware touchscreen gesture delivery

mechanism for touchscreen devices that delivers mechanical gestures to the screen
  [vote for,

This if a mechanism for a touchscreen device that delivers mechanical gestures to the screen.

The purpose would be to allow people who use screen readers (many of whom are blind) to deliver reliable consistent touch screen gestures to run a screen reader.

A frequent complaint of screen reader users is that it is too easy to execute a wrong gesture on a touch screen device.

This mechanical gesture deliverer could be something that fits over the face of the touch screen device and has one mechanical button that delivers a touch gesture to the screen, one button that delivers a double tap, and one button each that delivers a swipe left, right, up and down.

The software on the device could be built accessible so that everything could be run just with these gestures.

This would also allow drivers to operate a device like an iPhone eyes-free while driving (oops, shot myself in the foot)
