I have used touchscreens where it was possible to mouse around because a
mouseclick was done by having a double click on the screen (If you think
about how the classic Macintosh desktop, which Windows copied, works, then
this is the same idea).

Cheers

  tabbing isn't really good enough, but might have to be.

  can one stroke the screen perhaps?
