So far there is no Understanding text to back 2.5.1 Pointer Gestures. My proposed rewrite reflects changes discussed in the call of 20. Nov. 2017. 
I have created a pull request for the update here:

In particular, the revised understanding text tries to address the concern that the current wording might seem to suggest that authors can't use long press and double click.

In particular, my rewording includes the sentence:

"Single-point activation includes, but is not limited to, tapping, double tapping or long presses on a touchscreen or drawing tablet, single clicks, click-and-hold and double clicks via mouse pointer input, or an equivalent single-point activation via trackpad or laser pointer input”

If people believe we need to make the inclusion of long press and double click explicit in the SC text itself, we would need to iterate that SC once more.

The proposed revised understanding text for 2.5.1 Pointer Gestures is here:


Maybe there are changes to the SC text that were agreed last week (I could not attend the majority of calls) that invalidate this edit. If not, can we merge this draft into master so an understanding text is available?
