When you start up Kast on a Mac, the following dialog will pop up, and you might end up a bit confused. Why are we asking to control your computer like some kind of hypnotoad?
The reason we need to get some privileges on Mac is to make push-to-talk functionality work properly. Follow these steps to get everything set up correctly.
1. Click the "Open System Preferences" button, or just go directly to the System Preferences on your Mac (the coglike icon in your taskbar).
2. If you go to System Preferences yourself, select Security & Privacy (picture below). Select the Accessibility option from the list on the left.
3. When you are in the Privacy (Accessibility) settings, things should look like this:
(You might have some additional applications listed here, depending on what you use.)
Kast needs to have the checkbox next to it selected for it to work properly. If the checkbox is not selected, click the lock icon in the bottom left corner. You will be prompted to enter your Mac system password, after which you can make changes. Go ahead and make sure the checkbox is selected for Kast.
If Kast is not at all visible in the list of applications in this dialog, you can add Kast by clicking the "+" icon at the bottom of the list. A dialog will open up, where you can find Kast on your computer. You should find Kast in your "Applications" folder. After you have added it, again make sure the checkbox next to it is selected.
Once you are done, click the lock (bottom left) again to stop making changes
4. You are all set, awesome! That troublesome system popup should no longer be bothering you when you are launching Kast, and push-to-talk should work.
