Translate touch events to mouse events

function touchHandler(event) {
    var touch = event.changedTouches[0];

    var simulatedEvent = document.createEvent("MouseEvent");
        touchstart : "mousedown",
        touchmove : "mousemove",
        touchend : "mouseup"
    }[event.type], true, true, window, 1, touch.screenX, touch.screenY, touch.clientX, touch.clientY, false, false, false, false, 0, null);;

// Translate touch events to mouse events
document.addEventListener("touchstart", touchHandler, true);
document.addEventListener("touchmove", touchHandler, true);
document.addEventListener("touchend", touchHandler, true);
document.addEventListener("touchcancel", touchHandler, true);

Problem is that buttons might not work anymore because the input component expects touch events and not mouse events.
