VoiceOver is an accessibility tool by and for MacOS.
To activate Voiceover to be used, go into your System Preferences and enable it from your Accessibility settings.
You can customize your
VO key between holding
Caps Lock or the combination of
Control + Option. Below,
VO refers to this.
tab will move you to the next interactive element. This puts you in "form mode".
VO + arrow keys will move you through the document in DOM order. Up and down will move you inside or outside of the current element, and left and right will move you to the previous or next element. This is "browse mode".
Use the rotor! It is much easier to move around the whole page than by using tab or the arrow keys.
Shift on any of the "Next" actions will go to the previous element.
Ctrl will stop messages from playing.
