    We want the tooltip and onclick data to be keyboard accessible without having to use figcaptions, titles, off screen data tables, etc. Right now keyboard navigation jumps directly from the first link to the second link, which doesn't help sighted users who aren't using a screen reader if the only accessibility support is provided to non-sighted users as off-screen text.

    Hi Ed,

    If I understand this scenario correctly you would like to show the chart tooltip via keyboard navigation? If this is the case I am afraid it is not supported, however you could submit this idea as a feature request at Kendo UI UserVoice page and we will consider it for future releases. In case you are requesting a different functionality please elaborate a bit more - this way I would be able to advice you further and provide concrete recommendations.

    Hi Sarah,

    Displaying chart tooltips via keyboard navigation is not supported. As this idea hasn't been submitted as a feature request you could log it in Kendo UI UserVoice page - this way the community would be able to evaluate it and we will consider its implementation.
