Hi all, this has been an issue for me for a while and it is just aggravating and am hoping there is an easy fix to it. Either that or I'm missing something completely when interacting with package installers when they ask for a system password to continue on with the installation.
I'm in MacOS High Sierra, and every time I run a package installer for some software that requires me to enter my system password upon installation, VoiceOver seems to completely ignore the Security Agent dialog where I'm to enter my password. I'm always unable to interact with the dialog, option-tabbing away from the installer and coming back to it focuses VO on the Installer window itself and constantly announces that the installer is busy. I'm unable to switch or toggle between any windows or dialog boxes, and always need someone with vision to come in to focus the password entry window for me to continue.
I always end up having to force Quit the Installer since I just can't get the damned password dialog to focus. I once tapped my trackpad and it somehow managed to focus VO into the password entry field, but trying this seems to be a total crapshoot and more often than not will just toggle into another app running in the background.
Any tips for software installation with system passwords? Am I missing something completely obvious?
Edit: I can successfully bypass the GUI installer and this focus issue by installing packages with Terminal, just wanted to know if there was a way to fix this VO focusing issue.
