How does it work?

Shortcat leverages the Accessibility API used in macOS, used by VoiceOver and other screen readers, to be able to expose UI elements, menus, apps, and windows as a list for you to search through and action.


Shortcat requires macOS 11 and up, and is tested on 12.6. Optimised for Apple Silicon.
