How do I unlock my phone with TalkBack enabled?

I enabled TalkBack then locked my phone but now all I can access is my lock-screen. It tells me to double tap then swipe my screen but it does not open when I do this. Instead it simply reads all the info on my lock-screen. Time, date, temperature etc.

How to unlock my go launcher lock screen when TalkBack is enable?

I am using Samsung Galaxy tab 3 and go launcher as my lock screen. I accidentally enabled "TalkBack explore by touch" now I don't know how to unlock my screen. it says "slide down to kill task" I will slide it down but yellow lines on the side like box are appearing

"Explore by touch" actually is a function where you drag your finger on the screen and it gives you a description of every item that you hover on to.

If it tells you to slide down, you have to pay attention whether you have to do it only on top of the particular application that you are using or this applies to the entire screen.
