I might be missing something here, but is there an option or is it possible when using the tab key on keyboard to highlight the menu items?
For accessibility reasons.

No idea, may be @weaver will have more insight.
Are you saying that when hitting the Tab key it would highlight the current menu item, or navigate through the menu items?November 19, 2019 at 19:59 UTC - Views: 16 #62061
That is not standard browser behavior. Even if it were possible, it would not be a good idea to implement since literally no one would expect such behavior.
There are operating system and browser options available to allow better access to browser content via the keyboard, but all of that is mostly independent of a website or particular menu implementation.November 19, 2019 at 23:26 UTC - Views: 13 #62062
Hi Scrambler, that’s exactly it yes. When pressing tab key it would act like a hover over menu icon.
Hi Weaver, If you’ve heard of the recent case “Supreme Court lets blind man sue Domino’s over website”, accessibility seems to be a bit of a hot topic now.
I agree operating systems provide enough tools and don’t quite understand the above but hey ho.
Just wondered, if possible, if this was an option or a way of doing it.November 19, 2019 at 23:37 UTC - Views: 11 #62063
“When pressing tab key it would act like a hover over menu icon“
Which is it ??
hitting the Tab key would highlight the current menu item
hitting the Tab key would navigate through the menu itemsNovember 19, 2019 at 23:45 UTC - Views: 9 #62064November 20, 2019 at 01:57 UTC - Views: 6 #62065
Long day sorry, hitting tab key would navigate through the menu items.
So press tab once then “Item 1” would action hover, pressed again it would action hover on “Item 2” and so on.
At the moment hitting tab just shows the link information box in the bottom left.
Only curious if this was possible to do, not even sure if it’s a requirement for accessibility rules.
