How to send files from Mac to iPhone using AirDrop with VoiceOver?

macOS & Mac Apps


I know one can use drag and drop to send files over Wi-Fi from Mac to nearby iPhone using Airdrop. However, since drag and drop is problematic using VoiceOver, could someone tell me how can I transfer files some another way over Wi-Fi using VoiceOver? I am not looking for iCloud Drive file transfer or an other way which uses transfer over Internet, I am looking for a way how to achieve that using AirDrop.

I am running macOS 10.15.1 Catalina and iOS 13.2.

Thanks in advance.

Thank you very much for the quick reply.

I have one more question. How can I transfer files over USB cable with VoiceOver not using drag and drop?

Kind regards

1. Download imazing.
2. Go to the apps you want to transfer files to such as ring tones.
3. Click import to device.

I don't actually transfer anythign to my devices via usb, it's all air drop as I don't want to bother, but imazing does so much and so much more.
