About Keyboard Navigation
Standard keyboard shortcuts are used throughout Blackboard to move between menus, open menus and select items within a menu. Keyboard navigation patterns differ between browsers (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Chrome), but the interactions within any particular browser are common and consistent.
Note: If you are using a Mac with Firefox or Safari and are having difficulty navigating using your keyboard, review and update your operating system and browser settings. This ensures they are properly configured for keyboard navigation. To learn more, see:
Blackboard have created a Screen Reader Tutorial to provide users who access the application through a screen reader with information to help them use the system successfully.
