So I’m sure you’ve all received or placed a call from your iPhone when on your desktop Mac. It a great feature of OSX. But what happen when you make a call from your Mac to an automated call system, say your healthcare provider and they want you to input information via the keypad. Well up to now I thought I was SOL. The little window that pops up in the top right hand corner of the screen has no keypad. So it’s logical to try press numbers on your physical keyboard but you’ll discover no cowbell 🙁 no work!
Here’s the problem and the fix, you see the window that just popped up is not in focus, the keypad actually does work but you have to click the call window first THEN use the keypad – IT WORKS, YESSSSSS! A total fail on Apples part, you see they wanted a nice clean minimalist experience, and forget to give us a real virtual keyboard, utter fail Apple!
