The Keyboard navigation module allows users of any Mozilla browser, Windows Internet Explorer 5+, Opera 7+, Safari 1.2+ or Konqueror 3.2+ to navigate the menus with only the keyboard. In other browsers you can still navigate the main bar using Tab and Shift-Tab, or whatever keystrokes you would normally use.
In Mozilla , Safari or Internet Explorer: Press F12 to jump onto the navbar, then move around the menus with the arrow keys. You can activate a link by pressing Enter as normal, or jump back onto the page with F12 again.
In Opera: You can move around the navbar and menus using the A and Q [anchor navigation] keys, or using Spatial Navigation (hold down Shift then use the arrow keys to move around the page in two-dimensions; support for spatial navigation is not perfect, but it's pretty good). You can activate a link by pressing the Enter key as normal.
In Opera 8: You can also navigate the menus using relevant voice commands, such as "previous/next link", "open link", and the "move" commands of spatial navigation.
In Konqueror: You can move around the navbar and menus using the Tab key, and activate a link with the Enter key as normal.
If you want to change the F12 hotkey you can do so using the form below:
The navigation bar is simply a list of links. You can use Tab for navigation, and Enter to activate links, or whatever keystrokes you would normally use. This should also work in any pointing/actuating device that generates equivalent commands.
