Using Accessibility Scanner with TalkBack

Hello Android app testers,
I am using TalkBack (V8.1)  with updated Accessibility Scanner on a
Pixel running Android 10.
I have the Scanner enabled.
The Start Accessibility Scan button simply appears randomly on some screens.
Is there a setting / gesture that  will help me access the Start
Accessibility Scan button on screens I do want scanned?
I tried to doubletap in the upper part of the screen / near the
heading etc. but that does not help.
Even the Record / Snapshot / Close elements take a while to become
available to TalkBack though they are apparently displayed instantly
after activating the Start Accessibility Scan button.
Writing to Google's apps-help has not elicited a response.
I really appreciate if someone is able to provide some tips on using
the scanner with TalkBack.
Thanks in advance,
