Interface builder: making connections

App Development

I have tried every which way to make connections in XCode's interface builder. I can reliably get the controls on the desiner surface, arrange them, and run the app in both the IOS simulator and natively in OSX for MAC apps. Unfortunately, I cannot get connections to work. Trying every conceivable way possible fails to make a connection. drag/drop from connections inspector fails, dragging the control from IB to the implementation code file fails, creating an action stub and connecting it fails, and there is nothing anywhere on how to manually code up an action method. Does anyone have any ideas on how this works? Everything I read wants you to control-drag, but VO has no comparable feature. You cannot seem to control-drag with VO.

I hate to keep telling people this, but honestly, wait for Xcode 7. Without saying anything specific, I'll tell you it will change the way the whole process works with VoiceOver. You could grab the beta now if you want to, to get a jump on things. After 7 comes out this fall, all the resources appleVis has for Xcode will be updated to use it.

All I can really say at this point is that I use XCode 7 beta. Right now, it seems to have just as many problems as XCode 6. Drag/drop to create connections is no different in terms of ease of use for VO users. Putting this aside, do you have any ideas that could get this working the way it should?
