Using keyboard controls in the video player

When you watch a video on Kanopy in a web browser, the video player can be controlled with the keyboard. Keyboard controls work best when watching a video in fullscreen mode.

To use keyboard controls, open the video player and press Tab to move through the buttons in the player. You can press Shift + Tab to return to the previous button. The currently selected button will be highlighted. Press Enter or Space bar to use the selected button.

When no buttons in the video player are highlighted, you can use these keyboard controls:

  • Play/Pause: Space bar or Enter
  • Rewind 10 seconds:
  • Fast-forward 10 seconds:
  • Exit fullscreen: Esc
