      Description

      This demo illustrates the keyboard support of Telerik Grid for MVC, which provides quick access to available grid’s features without the need of using a mouse. This is very practical for apps that should cover the accessibility standards for people with disabilities.

      You can focus the grid using the ALT + W key combination, which will allow you to directly interact with the grid functionality through the provided keyboard shortcuts visualized above.

      Further details about the Keyboard, Section 508 and WAI-ARIA support of Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC extensions can be found in the Accessibility Overview section of the documentation.
