In our continuing discussion of how to make FaceTime calls on the Mac, I recently made a call that wanted me to press 1 for this and press 2 for that. If you've never done this with FaceTime on a Mac, you're in for a real adventure.
The obvious way to do it - simply pressing a key from the number row or NumPad, does not work. You must find the enigmatically labeled "toggle button" in the non-standard call window and select it. This opens something like a NumPad that you can VO+Arrow through, though the ordering seems to have been determined randomly as if a monkey threw digits into the air. When you do eventually happen to come across the number you're looking for, you can select it as usual (VO+Space).
When it was time for me to end the call, I figured I could select the End button. I brought up the Item Chooser (VO+I), found the End button, and jumped to it, but nothing happened when I selected it. Turns out focus was not on the End button. I tried Item Chooser again and got the same results - it was placing focus on some other control. I had to VO+Arrow around a few times before I eventually found, and could select, the End button.
Shaking head. Baffled as to why this is so challenging.
