Mashable India quoted a report by XDADevelopers that says the ‘Camera Switches feature’, which is one of the accessibility services in the Android Accessibility Suite app, will support setting gestures to specific controls. Smiling, opening the mouth, and looking out right, left, or down are reportedly the possible gestures, the app will include. The corresponding camera actions include getting to the homepage, scrolling backward and forward, and selecting. The app will also allow the users to adjust the gesture size and duration.
