An animated image of a hand moving from left to right. This hand is illustrating a user interaction technique called a swipe. The swipe is performed by placing your finger on the screen, pressing gently against the screen, then moving your finger without lifting about an inch to the left or right. Once the movement is performed, the finger is lifted, completing the swipe. Swiping left advances the slide. Swiping right goes back one.
Mobile users can use their fingers to drag left and right anywhere on the screen.

An animated image of a computer keyboards up, down, left and right arrow keys. The image shows that you can advance forward in this tool by clicking the right arrow key. The image also shows that you can go back one slide in the tool by pressing the left arrow key.
Keyboard users can use their left and right arrow keys.
