Did you know that once the TalkBack has been enabled on your phone it enables double tap.

To Swipe through the screen, you need to tap it with three fingers then swipe to the left or swipe it to the right.

If the phone screen is currently locked, basically. You need to unlock the phone screen first then disable TalkBack.

In case that you cannot unlock the phone screen, the only option is to perform a Factory Reset.

However, this will delete all data on your phone. Such as Contacts, Images, Videos, applications and any other you have on phone.

If you made a back up to a computer before then you can simply restore it after you Hard Reset the phone.

Doing Hard Reset will reset the settings you created, including TalkBack.

Here is how you reset:

2. Once the phone is off. Press and hold Volume up or the Volume Plus symbol

3. Press and hold power at least 30 seconds until you see an icon for recovery.

4. Use the volume keys to navigate and go to Wipe/Factory Reset. Use the home button to select

5. After you agree to reset, go back to the menu then select on reboot.

Once the phone has been rebooted, it will automatically unlock and set all to default. Also, the TalkBack will now be disabled.

Why does my S3 prompt me to unlock the device?

Here lately while listening to music, podcast, etc. the device will stop whatever I'm listening to and tell me to unlock the device. Why?

This happens when you have set your device to auto-lock in a short period of time. This is a security feature which locks your phone the moment you leave it on without touching it for a while. It is good because there is little chance for other people to access your device without authority. However, this can be rather bothersome as you may have to log-in several times each time.

To change this, go to your settings and then security. In there, you can change the amount of time before your device auto-locks.

With TalkBack on it will not prompt to the option?

I was trying to do a factory reset, so when going through the prompts I pressed it and turned it on just to see how it works but now I am not able to turn it off or go to the next screen. It just says what button I am pressing but does not go to that option. I have tried: I have tried to power it off but then it goes right back to the first step of the factory reset options and I have to press and hold down accessibility in order for it to go to the next step but when trying to press and hold the TalkOn option it goes nowhere. I think it was caused by: Going through the steps to ask as if I just purchased the tablet and got as far as the second option and its stuck
