This document is part of a global investigation that aims to establish best practices in usability testing of mobile applications, that fit the specific needs of persons with cognitive disabilities. The motivating factor is to improve the quality of life
of people with special needs. As a first step, we want to discover what are the skills of people with DS (DS) when using a
mobile device. Thanks to its direct manipulation interaction style, multi-touch technology is the ideal mechanism for learning activities with a view to the social inclusion of people with DS. This paper investigates the most common touchscreen
gestures on commercial existing software. A commercial analysis was carried out to discover the touch screen gestures
used by 103 free software Apps running on a mobile touch screen tablet of 11 where the applications run”. The commercial
analysis showed that most applications support tap and drag operations on multi-touch technology. Additionally, the research
sought to discover the adults with DS (19–54 years of age) ability to perform other gestures on multi-touch surfaces. A DS
user skill study was performed to assess the ability of this user segment to interact with multi-touch surfaces. ... mehr
