Pointer Gestures

Hai all,

I was testing a screen in mobile app. Here, we have a carousel with 5
slides in it. If we have to change the slide , need to swipe to left
or right. Screen reader users can do the same with 2 finger swipe .
Note: They haven't provided a specific control to change the slide ,
pagination buttons
Is it a failure of 2.5.1 Pointer Gestures?

Similarly, do we need to ask for specific control like a arrow icons
to increase / decrease the values of a slider ?

Thanks in advance,
