This article talks about the Atlas Recall setup process, with regards to approving access to Accessibility settings.
Recall uses technologies such as extensions in browsers and your Mac’s built in Accessibility feature to collect content that you can search on. By giving permission for Recall to use Accessibility on your computer, you are allowing it to use Mac’s screen reader to collect and search for content you work with all day. Without a connection to Accessibility, Recall can't read the content you work with, which will keep you from being able to search for it.
Allowing access to your Mac’s Accessibility settings does not give Recall access to your Keychain, passwords, account information, or other private information stored in your Mac.
To give Atlas Recall permission to your Accessibility Settings, follow these steps:
1. Launch System Preferences by clicking on the Apple logo in the top left corner of your screen.
2. From the drop down menu, select 'System Preferences.'
3. On the top row of apps, click on 'Security & Privacy.'
4. In the 'Security & Privacy' window, click on the 'Privacy' tab.
5. Verify that 'Atlas Recall' is on the list of items that need access to your Accessibility settings.
6. Please make sure that there is a check mark next to Atlas Recall, as not having access to this setting will prevent it from returning the best results possible. For more information on why Atlas Recall needs access to these settings, please read the relevant article here.
7. If you are unable to check the box next to 'Atlas Recall,' please make sure you click on the lock in the bottom left corner to make changes.
