Hi, I'm on a site that says, use pass key through, then spacebar to activate a submenu. Is this possible on OS 10 latest version? Thanks this is making me a little nuts. :) Not that I was exactly sane beforehand.
Yes it is. Use VoiceOver tab. The Mac will say "ignoring next key stroke" or something to that effect when you press that key combo. Hope this helps.
Hi Siobhan. Yes, you press the Option and number 3 key together, then press the spacebar. Then VO right arrow to go through the options in the sub-menu. I'm guessing you came across this on Audible.com? It's the only website I've seen it on anyway. Weirdly nothing seems to happen when I do it on the Wishlist link, but it works on the other ones like Hi David (in my case for more account options) and Library links for example. HTH
Oh wow! Dave, I never knew about option 3. Thanks for alerting me to that very useful keystroke.
No problem. I just happened to be on the phone to Audible customer support a while back and it came up.
As it said, thanks to both of you Katie I tested yours, it worked but haven't done the option three yet. Now if only the Bank of America shopping mall site were back to being accessible. It never ends... Thanks guys :)
Oh one other thing... the Option 3 thing doesn't seem to work if you have QuickNav on. Forgot to say that before.
