Keyboard Accessibility

Viewers can control the player using their keyboard. The player only responds to keyboard keys when the player is selected. The player is selected when the mouse hovers over it or when the user’s last click was on the player.


To disable keyboard controls, go to playout settings, select the playout, and click on the Behaviour tab. Check the box for ‘Disable keyboard controls’.

The following keys can be used to control the player.
