How do I unlock my Android tab with TalkBack enabled?

I activated TalkBack then my screen went off. When I tried to unlock I could not. I tried pressing and holding the power button as instructed, but that only powered off the tab. When I put it on again TalkBack was still active and my screen was still unable to unlock. I tried swiping upwards as normal to unlock it but to no avail. It just keeps saying the screen options e.g time, battery percentage, emergency call etc.. Please, how can I unlock my screen with TalkBack enabled?.

Use two fingers instead of one to double tap on the lock screen input field. This will bring up the keyboard. Whenever you are in TalkBack and want to touch the screen, you just two finger tap or swipe. You may have to restart the phone or press longer than you feel you should for the phone to recognize you are setting it up.

Did you double tap the screen so that you could physically put in the pinlock with the keyboard? If the double tapping is not working then try using Samsung's Find My Mobile to remotely unlock your phone. Make sure to keep the screen on while doing this until the phone unlocks.

How to unlock my phone when it has TalkBack?

It has TalkBack and its a Samsung Trend Neo. I have tried: Type my password. I think it was caused by: Pressed TalkBack accessibility

After you have double tapped the phone to use the keyboard, you will still have to double tap and use long exaggerated presses to navigate to the menu and turn off the TalkBack from within the Settings. Too bad you can't just state OK TalkBack Mode Turn OFF like when you say OK Google for a Google search or to send a text message.

How do I unlock my Samsung J5 while in TalkBack mode?

It doesn't seem to be recognizing my password while doing this. I have tried: Restarting ,and entering my password. I think it was caused by: TalkBack and screen lock

You will be able to unlock after you double tap the screen. Continue to double tap and use two fingers to swipe until you can turn the TalkBack Off. Make sure that you are taking your time while swiping or the phone will not recognize you as swiping with you are in TalkBack mode.

My phone says slide to unlock when I double tap the lock icon but when I slide it, it won't slide?

I'm really stressing out, please, if you could help me I would be so grateful. I have tried: Double tap on lock and swipe. I think it was caused by: Activating TalkBack on my phone by accident

You have to use two adjacent fingers to slide, sliding as normal as you do in general would not work in TalkBack mode.

The unlock password does not work as described on my S7 - locked with Voice Assistant on?

I follow the instructions but get no entry into the password box. Either the system does not recognize my double tap or something else. All I get is the voice response. I do wait until it stops talking before I enter my text. My password includes CAPS and lower case, and if I somehow manage to get it into shift mode, it won't go back to lower case.
