Microsoft has the Sticky Keys accessibility option so that you don’t have to hold down a modifier. Too much holding down, like in mouse dragging, and swiping on a touchscreen can be bothersome for people who suffer from a repetitive strain injury, or other people with motor disabilities.

On the Android Home screen or “All Apps”, tapping on the right edge = swipe to the left, which moves you to the next screen on the right.

When browsing Chrome, or YouTube, is there a way that you can similarly touch somewhere near the bottom edge of the screen to execute a swipe up (page down)? Perhaps an accessibility option can be turned on to add a page down button in the Navigation Bar?

It would be like browsing a webpage on the desktop, and instead of just tapping the space bar, or page down buttons, you have to keep swiping upwards on the screen.
