Touchscreen webclient

We have made a form that will be used in a production environment. We don't want to use moue or keyboard. The form has fields that will be filled by using a scanner. For the buttons we would like to use a touchscreen.

What are the things we need to consider? (For instance: increase button size so they can be pressed by a finger in a glove) Are there any guidelines?

button size is the first thing. then you'll have to correctly setup the default focus (openerp has such capability but you can also set it via js) on the fields that have to be filled once the form gets opened (useful if you use barcode scanners for instance). therefore, you also have (probably) to take care about the function keys that you can use to bind specific functions (some industrial panel pcs have button bound to F1,F2,...)

Thx, one thing that was unclear to us is how to set the tab sequence. Because after scanning we need 2 tabs, but the scanner only enters 1 tab after scanning. Can you give more info on how to do set the tab sequence in OpenERP?
