HT3577 How can I turn off the text editing feature on an iPhone 4 with iOS 6.x - when my Mom taps the phone, it always brings up copy.  It does not do this for me so I am assuming it is the way her disability forces her fingers to hit the screen.

My Mom has tremors and when she uses her iPhone and taps to select, the way she hits the keyboard causes the copy selection to appear.  It is not an issue with her phone because it does not do this for me.  I would like to shut off the double tap feature.  I have already tried Settings/General/Accessibility/Home speed typing = slowest.

iPhone 4, iOS 6.0.1
