Talkback is essentially a screen reader, though somewhat more feature-rich since it can also access hardware like the vibrator. It's intended to be used system-wide for accessibility purposes. The Play Store listing describes it as "[...] an Accessibility Service that helps blind and vision-impaired users interact with their devices".
Google TTS is the ...
I don't think TalkBack mode alone is the culprit here, but you must have enabled "Explore by Touch" also when you activated TalkBack, which makes things tricky.
If you just have the regular swipe to unlock feature for your lock screen, to unlock it, you'll need to...
Use TWO fingers and swipe the screen, but make sure your two fingers are separated, ...
From source code of Launcher3 in Android 6.0.1 r16:
The workspace is a wide area with a wallpaper and a finite number of pages. Each page contains a number of icons, folders or widgets the user can interact with.
Honestly, this is the first time I heard the term workspace in context of a launcher for Android, but if you want a standard term, there you ...
In theory when a blind user first starts up the phone they have the option to start talk back. When it is turned on at start up, the tutorial automatically starts.
This option is available for devices running Android 4.0 and above.
When you first turn on your Android device, you can enable TalkBack from the initial setup screen.
I got the solution!
Somehow I could get into the settings menu by turning aeroplane mode on and starting Google Maps (which is on my home screen). Google Maps then sends you to settings. In there I can scroll using three fingers.
Problem can also be caused by airDroid. Go to settings accessibility and ensure AirDroid notifications are turned off. It took nearly 2 hours to find this one as I had done everything suggested in this thread. Frozen screens just remember to use 2 fingers
Talkback is open source, and the files available on Github:
The audio files are included in the repository in .ogg format. Simply download the repository and extract all of the .ogg files to access the audio.
Make sure that you select the same language under the following options:
1. Settings -> Accessibility -> Text-to-speech output -> ***** Text-to-speech,
settings button behind it -> Language -> English(United States)
2. Language and Input -> Language -> English(United States)
You may select any Language, but choose the same language in both of ...
You should think of "Talkback" as its own app, like any other app in Android. So the version of the Talkback-app usually has not much to do with the Android version. You can have a new version of Android, but an old version of Talkback and vice versa.
Most of the time the Talkback-version in a newer Android is also newer, but you could manually upgrade ...
While this solution does not disable speed dial it does make the phone less sensitive to pauses, and makes dialing when talk back and explore by touch are both active much friendlier.
Suggestion by a family friend, worked great thank you.

Firstly, my best wishes for your brother.
As for your question. My phone is in English. But I set the Google Now to understand both English and Turkish. Please note, Google Now itself is in English. But it understands Turkish commands too. I believe the very same can be done with Danish as well.
At Google Now, go to:
From there, ...
In general, you would call all other screens as pages, while the default screen that appears when you tap the home button as home screen as Firelord's answer also suggests
Samsung seems to think otherwise ! On page 39 of user manual downloaded from https://www.att.com/support_static_files/manuals/Samsung_Galaxy_S_III.pdf, it says

OK, now I understand. The system language is what is used to display the text associated with the various user interface elements (app icon names, menu item names, etc...) whereas the TTS language is what is used to sound these names out. If the TTS language were to differ from the system language, then you would hear all names pronounced incompetently (...
