Some questions about VoiceOver on Mac OS X

Forum
macOS & Mac Apps

Hello,
I was wondering if you could help me with a few queries that I have.

On OSX how do you get on to the content chooser using voiceover?
How can you edit the rotor (not the web rotor)?
How can you select a document/window and move it? (E.g, in finder if I wish to organise my files how do I select and move one document toa different place in that folder)?

Thank you :)

To move a file or folder highlight that which you wish to move and press command C, go to where you wish to move it and press command/option V. In addition you can highlight multiple things by using the shift key and your arrows up and down if in list view with quick nav on and then following the same procedure above. As far as content menu goes I am not quite sure what you are referring to, do you mean item chooser? If not please let me know what you mean.

Hi thank you for such a quick response :D

It may well be the item chooser, sorry I though it was content chooser.

In terms of the folders, it was more about moving files in the folders they are already in not to copy and paste them. Do you know how to do this?
Thank you again,

yeah, I think what you are referring to is the "item chooser" I've used mac for 5 years give or take a few months, so feel free to ask another questions and we'll try to be of more assistance on here.
As for moving files around in folders, theres no real way to reorder them except for name, kind, size, or date added/modified in the view menu. That's all I got!
Take care and good luck!
