While this is not required, it is definitely beneficial, as using your phone when TalkBack is turned on can be frustrating if you don’t know what to do. For example, you will need to use two fingers to scroll the screen. This is particularly important when you want to go back and turn Talkback off, as the menu option is below the bottom of the screen.
