Player keyboard shortcuts

Accessing the rich text editor

To access the rich text toolbar, focus on the text area. Then press Fn + Alt + F10 (PC) or Fn + Option + F10 (Mac).

Note: This is the text editor for a discussion interaction. After using the keyboard shortcuts to access the rich text editor, press Tab to expand the second row of options by focusing on the triple dot menu and pressing Enter.

To access the expanded rich text editor toolbar, focus on the text area. Then press Fn + Alt + F9 (PC) or Fn + Option + F9 (Mac). Pressing Escape will bring the focus back to the text area.

With free-response interactions, press Tab to focus on Use rich text and press Enter.

The expanded rich text editor toolbar can be accessed using the same keyboard commands from above. The triple dot menu will be absent.

To access a list of these shortcuts at any time a learner can click the keyboard icon under a discussion or free response interaction. A pop up will appear on screen with a list of all of the keyboard shortcuts for accessibility. The learner can hit enter or click the X icon to exit this screen at any time.
