    I am aware keytips can be used for the radribbonbar. Is there a way to use the directional arrows to navigate the radribbonbar.

    Thanks

    Hi Alan,

    Thank you for your question.

    The RadRibbonBar control navigation follows the rules which are described in Microsoft Office 2007 UI Design Guidlines e.g. you cannot navigate with arrow keys.

    Do not hesitate to contact us if you have other questions.

    Best wishes,

    As a heads up, I have read their guidelines, but Office 2007 allows pressing alt key and then using the arrow keys to navigate. Otherwise anyone who uses screenreader software has to memorize the layout for every menu on the application.
