Tip: Use two-finger gestures
All TalkBack gestures use one finger. As long as you only use one finger on the screen, your touch or gesture is only interpreted by TalkBack.
When you use two or more fingers, your touch or gesture goes straight to the app, rather than to TalkBack. For example, you can scroll by dragging two fingers.
In some apps, you can zoom by putting two fingers on the screen and pinching them together or pulling them apart. These gestures work normally with TalkBack on, since they use two fingers.
