On-screen Gestures

    Description

    IntuiFace's support for on-screen gestures enables you to use specific finger movements on a touch display to trigger actions.

    These gesture triggers are associated with either the experience as a whole, an individual scene itself or a static asset. That is, the gesture is captured if it is initiated in the experience, a scene or a static asset that has been associated with the corresponding trigger.

    The list of supported gestures varies by platform:

    • Player for Windows: IntuiFace supports 25 different gestures grouped into 5 categories, each of which can be used to trigger one or more actions. The list of gestures is here.
    • Player for Tablets and Player for Kiosks: IntuiFace supports the gestures Swipe Up/Down and Swipe Left/Right, each of which can be used to trigger one or more actions. You can see these four gestures listed here.

    A common example would be to use the swipe left / right triggers to call the next / previous navigation action.

    In the context of design for accessibility, performing gestures on static assets will enable you to capture large, gross motor gestures for every individual, static item in a running experience. For example, create an on-screen trackpad for navigation. Or trigger text-to-speech without requiring perfect touch precision.
