FEATURE REQUEST: Allow prototype hotspots to be focused and triggered by keyboard

As a designer who needs to demonstrate experiences where users are using keyboard to navigate and take action, I want prototype hotspots to be focusable and triggered according to keyboard standards (e.g., Tab, Return keys), so that I can more easily communicate the desired experience for keyboard users.

Hi Adam,

Thanks for taking the time to share this feedback with us! Just to clarify, are you looking for the ability to create a hotspot in build mode, and rather than click/hover, be able to assign a keyboard function to trigger that hotspot to go to another screen?

I'd just like to be sure I'm understanding properly before passing along this feedback for you!

@Michael - Hi, ideally the solution for my request doesn't require assigning any keyboard functions. Hotspots are already <a> elements, by default clicking tab key should allow focusing on the hotspot and the return key should allow triggering the hotspot. Allowing a single option to make hotspots accessible by keyboard makes more sense in terms of level of control desired.

I hope that helps, I'd expect a front-end engineer on your team to understand my request based on the supplied info.
