As a user, I would like to have button presses have some non-visual feedback as well as visual. The button is often hidden by the finger when it is pressed, so it would help to have it "click" as well as highlight.

Same for most of the other widgets: ComboBoxes could have the same feedback of the PullDown menu, sliders could have some sort of low-level buzz as long as the user interacts with them and so on.

You can change vibration settings by tweaking the non-graphical feedback daemon ngfd. The config files can be found in /usr/share/ngfd.

Basically everything is done by editing text files, presuming you have time for a little research.

A GUI interface would be handy, though, as requested here: https://together.jolla.com/question/83453/app-for-configuring-non-graphical-feedback/
