Do you have an example of which browser and assistive technology you are finding the issue with? On the Mac you could try using CTRL-CMD-(arrow or i, j, k, m) keys. From your statement, it sounds like the ctrl modifier isn’t being respected as the i, j, m, l keys alone are used to change selection but not reorder.

Hi Colin,

I was still unable to reorder the list items using keyboard-only. Although the focus moves every ctr + j,m,i, or l, I don't see the list being reordered. I'm using MAC. Can you share if it it working on your end?

Hi Anna,

Thanks for pointing this out. The Infusion Reorderer component supports multiple key bindings for precisely this reason. So in addition to CTRL+cursor keys, which do indeed conflict with some assistive technologies, you can also use CTRL+i-j-k-m to similarly interact with the Reorderer. It has been a few years since we’ve done a very comprehensive survey of these default key bindings with many assistive technologies (their shortcuts are always expanding and changing), but last we tested, these defaults worked quite nicely with a variety of screen readers and other tools. Let us know if this has changed in your experience.

Behind the scenes, the Reorderer is also totally configurable so that an integrator of the component can easily remap all actions to other keyboard shortcuts.

I hope this helps and am always happy to hear your suggestions or advice for further improvement,

Due to its use of custom keyboard controls (CTRL+cursor keys), the live example of this list reorderer widget does not work correctly with some assistive technology due to a clash of keyboard shortcuts.
