Understand that touch screens do not work equally well for everybody, so the brake method may be the only way that works reliably for her.

The 'extreme weather' warning screen on our WRX almost never responds to me when I try to cancel it, so I've stopped bothering to try. And I've had touch screens lock up on me mid-word when signing in at a local medical facility, though the admin person could pick up and continue from where I got locked out with no difficulty whatsoever. Those are the recent ones.

It probably involves some body electrical thing, capacitance or resistivity, where the screen's electronics can't handle individual body values that are outside of the expected range(s).
