On-swipe makes the text not selectable

I have a long text and i am showing it as e-book in e-reader swiping left and right.
At the same moment i need to select a part of the text and at the beginning i did adding: overflow-scorll=true.
But now i have added the swipe functions and it blocks the event of selectable text.
my piece of code looks like that:

<ion-content class="padding projects" overflow-scroll="true" >
        <div class="list" id="text" on-swipe-left="swipeLeft()" on-swipe-right="swipeRight()">

If i remove on-swipe-left or right the texts becomes selectable again
