Dynamic Media supports keyboard control and assistive technologies, such as JAWS and NVDA screen readers, across the authoring user interface.
Because Dynamic Media is a plug-in to Adobe Experience Manager Assets, most of the keyboard control behavior is exactly the same as in Experience Manager Assets. For example, the
Cancel button in Dynamic Media has the same focus highlight as in Experience Manager Assets, and reacts to the
Spacebar key as in Experience Manager Assets. See Keyboard shortcuts in Assets.
Keystrokes supported by individual user interface elements in Dynamic Media are–in most cases–obvious and easy to discover. Keyboard control in Dynamic Media is about the following:
Shift+Tabkeystrokes to navigate between interactive elements on the page.
Tabadvances input focus to the next user interface element in the tabbing order; using
Shift+Tabbrings input focus back to the previous user interface element.
Tabto move the focus to it.
Enterkey to activate standard user interface elements, such as buttons, drop-down list, and so on.
Spacebarto select an image and add it to a segment. In addition, you have the ability to use the
Backspacekey to delete the selected item from the Content tab. Also, pressing
Tabfunctions as desired to navigate between interactive elements on the page.
Tabstop highlights the entire image frame. You can then use arrow keys on the keyboard to re-position the frame.
Tabstops are the frame’s four corners. When focus is placed on a frame corner, the corner is highlight. Again, you can use arrow keys on the keyboard to move the focused corner.
Dynamic Media user interface elements work with assistive technologies such as screen readers. For example, it recognizes landmarks on a page when you navigate landmarks using keyboard shortcut
D or regions using keyboard shortcut
R. It also narrates the heading when navigating using the heading keyboard shortcut
