Re: Question on Drop-down with MAC VoiceOver

Looks like you are using a native select/option element so whatever
behavior you are seeing should be native to the Mac.

Ignoring voiceover for the moment, do you have the option turned on to
allow the tab key to navigate to all elements? There's a general Mac
setting and a Safari setting (you didn't say which browser you were using).

The general setting is in system preferences > keyboard > shortcuts.
Select the "use keyboard navigation..." checkbox.
The Safari setting is in preferences > advanced. Select the "Press TAB to
highlight..." checkbox.
