Xcode screenshot showing pop-up

(By way of background I have been helping a local blind child learn coding. He's switching schools from a Windows based school to a Mac based school so I am trying to familiarise myself with VoiceOver on the Mac.)

When using VoiceOver and Xcode to write Swift into a new Swift Playground a pop-up window appeared requesting my password.

How might I navigate to the pop-up without using a mouse?

I tried the arrow keys, tab, with and without ⌘, and ⌘ `, all to no avail.

(N.B. Unless I could see the screen I would have had no idea that the pop-up had appeared, VoiceOver did not mention it.)

  • See keyboard -> Shortcuts -> full screen access. – ankii Sep 3 at 15:36
  • @ankiiiiiii do you mean "full screen access"? I can see "full keyboard access" here – dumbledad Sep 9 at 8:54

    As mentioned in the question, I tried tab, but the pop-up did not have focus so tab just prints a tab in the Swift Playground – dumbledad Sep 9 at 10:02
