Side TOC not accessible using standard keystrokes

Post by rjcbop »

We're currently in the process of testing our responsive webhelp against the WCAG 2.1 standard and have discovered that the side TOC (wh_publication_toc) does not appear to honor some of the standard keystrokes for navigating the tree. For example, according to the WAI-ARIA Authoring Practices for treeviews (https://www.w3.org/TR/wai-aria-practices-1.1/#TreeView), the right arrow key should expand a collapsed node and the left arrow key should collapse an expanded node, but they don't. Also, the up and down arrow keys should navigate up and down the tree (without expanding or collapsing nodes) but they don't.

Thanks for any information regarding these issues.
