    Hi folks, is there any way to trigger and reveal sub-menu in vertical fly-out nav with just a keyboard “Tab” navigation if the link in nav gets focus to improve accessibility? I am trying this on [Here…]( “”) to no avail.

    @hompimpa, thank you, that’s a great start. How would we go about it to continue tabbing through all fly-out items before it goes to next parent?

    @hompimpa, you accomplish to reveal fly-out with tab key. But when you hit Tab second time the fly-out disappears. When you keep pushing Tab it seems that it cycles through fly-out items while the fly-out is hidden before it goes to next parent. Is there a way to have the fly-out visible while you cycle through it’s items?

    @hompimpa, I just finished building horizontal drop-down nav which is completely accessible just with a Tab Key. I had to use script for that. I put it on Codepen and it didn’t work at all. I tested it on Chrome, FF, Opera, Safari and IE10,IE9, IE8. Had problem with IE7 which I will prolly be able to fix with conditional statement and style couple things differently. I can put it back on Pen if you’d like. I have no idea why it didn’t work on Codepen at all.

    Edit: You getting close on that vertical one tho and just like you said the fly-out just stays open.
