Day 23: VoiceOver for macOS

Needing to take a break from reading through so much documentation, I decided to spend some time with some assistive technology. Specifically, I practiced navigating with VoiceOver (VO) on my MacBook Pro. Turns out that it was more a challenge than I anticipated!

Things I accomplished

What I learned today

  • I surprised myself be feeling more out of water on my MBP then I did with my iPhone when using VoiceOver. I’ve become fairly familiar with NVDA on Windows, so I really felt like I was having to relearn navigating with a screen reader.
  • Control + Option + U opens the rotor.
  • Sometimes using VO felt complex when having to hold down 4 keys to “quickly” navigate a webpage.
