Steve,

Swiping up with two fingers does work, but doesn't remove the notification
shade. The only way to get focus on this is to explore the screen until I'm
focussed on the dock or one of the desktop icons.
Very strange,
David.

PS using latest version of talkback, and latest android version.

Hi,

Try unlocking the phone, by swiping up with two fingers.

What you are seeing is not the notification bar, but the lock screen
notifications.

All the best

Steve

Hi,

 

Whenever my screen is locked on my Galaxy S6, I press the home key, and the
notification shade comes up. I eventually find the swipe with two fingers to
unlock, and once unlocked, the notification shade is there. The only way for
the desktop to get focus is for me to explore the screen until I find a
desktop icon. This wouldn't be too bad, but even in apps, it sometimes
happens. It is probably something I've set in error.

As usual, I'd be grateful for any help,

 

David.
