I was a little confused to note that a lot of Hp machines running windows 7 seem to have touch support. I know nothing about how this works, but would suspect its not the same as in windows 10 in any way, and is best ignored if using nvda.
The computers seem to be either integrated monitor and computer or laptops from HP.

Subject: [nvda] Introducing Enhanced Touch Gestures 17.07 #AddonRelease

Hi all,

I'm delighted to announce the immediate release of Enhanced Touch Gestures
version 17.07 (aka Project Ailee). Version 17.07 of this touchscreen add-on
for NVDA packs tons of new features and changes, some of which are
documented below.

The new version can be found at:

Notable additions include:

* Touch command passthrough: there are times when you need to interact
directly with a touchscreen as though NVDA is not running. You can now do so
by doing two things: assign a command to a script that turns on touch
passthrough (you can find this under Input Gestures dialog), then go to a
new dialog named Touch Interaction in NVDA preferences menu and configure
"pause NVDA's touch commands" option between 3 and 10 seconds (default is
* Touch keyboard and standard versus touch typing: In iOS and certain
other platforms, when pressing keys on the touch keyboard, you have an
option between touch typing versus standard typing where you perform double
tap or lift your finger to press keys, respectively. After installing
version 17.07 of Enhanced Touch Gestures, standard typing will be in effect.
To change back to touch typing, open Touch Interaction dialog and check
"touch typing" checkbox.
* Due to changes made in NVDA, this add-on will now require NVDA
2017.1 or later.

Known issues: Touch Interaction may appear under NVDA preferences menu on
computers with no touch support. I plan to fix this as part of 17.07.1.
