are reversed.

Note that the Atari Touch Tablet, the KoalaPad Touch Tablet and the Suncom
Animation Station are read by the computer in the same way that the computer
receives data from paddle controllers, making software designed for paddles at
least somewhat usable with these graphics tablets as well.  See a separate
section in this FAQ list for a list of programs that use paddle controllers.
