Hi Don,


please find included the comments of me and our keyboard expert Oliver
Keim regarding the document you sent.




-          Escape: focus is returned to the currenlty selected menu


Combo box:

-          Focus is inside input field.

-          Alt-down opens the list

-          The combobox button is not a tab target, designed for mouse



-          Tree state checkbox: space cycles through all three states
and then repeats cycles.


Radio button:

-          Statement missing if navigation automatically selects or not.

-          If so, space is not required.

-          If so, non-automatic navigation needs to be provided by
control and arrow keys and space selects.


Radio Player:

-          Check standard and open source players for a keyboard
interface that is easy to use.
(www.videolan.org, mediaplayer, iTunes, Quicktime) videolanhas the best
keyboard interface of all (and the most complete function set too, e.g.
change of aspect ratio).

-          Two simultaenously used modifier keys are not easy to grab.

-          If a radio player control has focus a letter based interface
is enough for control.

I would not support the defined keyboard interface. Require a radio
player control to have focus instead.

For hotkey based interfaces (non-focused) ensure the letters are equal
to the standard keys noted above.


Tab Panel

-          Alt-del: in all lists the delete key is used, confirmation
dialogs appear. I would expect the same behaviour for all controls that
provide lists. Tab panels provide lists of tabs. So the delete key
should work compliant.

-          To tab into a tabs content the tab key should be used. There
is no need of additional functionality if the tab keystroke skips to
next control and not to the tab.



-          Ctrl-* should work instead of * alone

-          Ctrl-plus should expand

-          Ctrl-minus should collapse

Provides a more consistent way between the interactions itself and the
standard functionality of the windows explorer tree, which already
provides this functionality.


Tree Grid:

-          Require a tab keystroke to toggle between the tree based
structure and the grid based structure.

-          Ensure the tree component behaves like the tree

-          And the grid component like a grid (which is not yet defined,
