  • If your Tablet is password locked, press and hold on the password field, then double tap it and enter your password by long-pressing each character of your password, then double tap `Done` to unlock your Tablet.
  • If your Tablet is pattern locked, just swipe your regular pattern using your two fingers.
  • If your Tablet is swipe locked, just double tap on the lockscreen and then swipe to unlock using your two fingers.

While the TalkBack feature is activated you are going to need to double tap on the screen so that you are able to scroll up and down the screen successfully. Once you reach the menu that you desire to reach simply perform a double tap so that you can begin scrolling the menu.
