How to create a keyboard macro

Forum
Other Apple Chat

On my Mac I use VoiceOver and inverted colors. It is not possible to use the shortcut key to invert colors back to normal when VoiceOver is active. So I have to press Command + F5 to deactivate VoiceOver, then press Fn + Ctrl + Alternative + 8 to invert colors, and then again press Command + F5 to activate VoiceOver again.

There must be a way to create a AppleScript with keystrokes but I can't figure it out.
Does anyone have suggestions on how to make a keyboard macro which can perform the above mentioned task?

Thank you in advance!

Hi Tim.

Thank you for the advise. It is a great video. The problem is solved just by changing the keyboard shortcut from Ctrl + Alt + Command 8 (which is default) to a different combination. It is now possible for me to invert colors even though VoiceOver is active.
