B2013 - What do I need to keep in mind when a touch screen is used for student interaction?

by - Joseph Ganci

Simple question -- when creating a program to respond to touchscreen, does the touchscreen replace the mouse -- I know it does for navigation purposed but is the authoring the same -- can I use hot spots in the same manner?  Can the mouse be used if the touchscreen is not available?

Yes, the touchscreen replaces the mouse so authoring is the same in that respect. However, since touchscreens require fat fingers rather than precise mice to point and click, you'll want to make your hot spots larger and further apart from each other while designing so that fingers don't accidentally trip a different hot spot than intended. Also, touch screens need to be periodically calibrated to keep them in sync.
