Hi, my friend Keith and I been working with the developer of the popular Mac application Keyboard Maestro to make it more accessible with VoiceOver. I’m pleased to report that the latest update includes a number of accessibility fixes, which now makes much of the application usable with VoiceOver. There are, however, still a few areas that need further work, but the developer is striving to address these in a future update.
In the meantime, Keith and I will be recording a podcast which demonstrates some of the features of KeyBoard Maestro and how it can be used with VoiceOver.
If you’re not familiar with Keyboard Maestro, it’s a Mac application that allows you to perform a multitude of tasks simply by pressing a keystroke. It also incorporates the MacOS Classic utility Program Switcher, which allows you to launch, switch, and quit applications with a simple keystroke.
More information on Keyboard Maestro can be found on the developer’s website at: http://www.keyboardmaestro.com
Keyboard Maestro usually sells for $36, but the developer has very kindly passed us a discount code which will save you 20%. The code is APPLEVIS (must be in all caps) and can be redeemed through the developer’s website.
