Keyboard action does not work

Hi
We are developing an online course for a client whose requirement is to meet Accessibility requirements for their visually impaired and blind users. The keystroke that triggers the Process Question action doesn't work (we tried Enter, Ctrl+Enter and so on). All works correctly with mouse input (onClick).
Any ideas or work around the issue will be appreciated.

    Hi, @drago! What version of Lectora are you using for this project?

    The Submit button will run any On Mouse Click actions when Enter or Spacebar is pressed and the Submit button has keyboard focus. This works in v19. The project/title should be set to Design Tab ->
    Title Options -> Use Web Accessibility Settings, and the Submit button should be enabled, Always on top should be unchecked, and Empty ALT Tag should be unchecked.

    This works for me in Firefox and Chrome. We no longer test with IE.

    Anyway, if you are not seeing this working you should report it to
    [email protected] It should work.

    To ensure process question is working try enabling immediate feedback with a Display Message action.

    Thank you, @wheels . The Tests' behaviour is interesting, to say the least. MCQ answers are showing as selected (that is, using keyboard input), however, nothing happens when the questions are processed. We tested on various Browsers, same results, or lack thereof. The one solution that seems to work is to use buttons that set the variable associated with the question to an answer (one per button). It is not ideal, but we don't have another solution.
    All works as intended when using a mouse.
    We will report the behaviour to [email protected]

    @drago if you can make a sample project, export it to zip and attach it here then others in the forum could take a look as well. One other thing I thought to try is to switch the button shape. It looks like you are using the pill shape button and sometimes that has issues. Are you on v19.0.4 (the latest 19)?

    @wheels . I am on ver19.0.4. The issue seems to be with the questions and the radio buttons. The user input (question variable) doesn't "register". I will export a sample and upload here. This only happens if I use the keyboard as input method (Tabbing and Enter key/Space bar). It works 100% using mouse input.
