Tap area for page turning

Hi all. Sorry for my bad english.
I'd like to know if there is a trick to reduce the tap area for page turning (for instance, bottom left screen corner for page back, bottom right for page forward), to reduce the possibility of unwanted turnings due to unintentional taps while reading a book.
Thanks in advance,
Bye

As far as I know, you can change the tap areas to 3 or 4 predefined variants but there is no way to resize tap zones.

And the problem with Kobo seems to be more the page not turning when you tap, and not unintentional taps.

Over time, you'll learn how to use the device so you won't unintentionally tap it.

I'm not a newbie about kobo (glo)... it simply happens. I know the 3 predefined variants, I was asking about mods to further reduce areas... But, evidently, there aren't. Thank you anyway.

Yep, this is the only thing I miss from the older Kobos with the really big bottom bezel... they were so easy to hold. I wish there was a way to disable touch when reading on the bottom two inches of the screen. This would at least let me hold it like a real book. Unfortunately, that is not possible (yet...).

I might add, the SleepCover really makes my Aura easier to hold when reading. That was the deciding factor in my purchase of the cover, despite the steep price (~$35).
