Idea about integrating touch typing and standard typing into one

I was just wondering if people thought it would be a good idea to combine the standard typing with the touch typing feature. I ask this because I think it would b cool to be able
to swipe right or left like you currently can on touch typing and once you find the letter, number, symbol, or character you want, you could simply double
tap and it will be selected.
For example, in touch typing during a text, you could touch type the character you want such as "a,"then instead of going to the part of the keyboard corresponding with "m," you could simply flick to the right until you hear m and then double tap and it would be selected.
Another example would be touch typing letters and then switching to the number mode where there are numbers and punctuations. without having to rotate
and select a different typing mode, you could simply flick right or left on the symbols in order to find something like an apostrophie. Likewise when using the emogy
keyboard, you wouldn't have to change the typing mode to standard or touch, but simply click right or left to choose the emoticon image and then double
tap to slect it.
Currently on the touch typing mode, you can flick right or left after placing your finger on a character and lifting to have it selected. However, you cannot
double tap to slect the next character, but you can tripple tap to select the character twice in a row. For example, when in touch typing mode, you can
flick through characters until you reach the letter "t," and triple tapping will type out "t" twice and you are left with a double "tt." Double tapping
does nothing at all in touch typing mode.
I just thought it would be cool to have touch typing and standard typing integrated into one mode so that the voice over user could choose how they would like
to interact with the various keyboards while inputting texts, urls, phone numbers, searches, emails, or other information.
