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 use the tab key to move through the buttons in the player. You can press shift and tab at the same time 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: Press space or enter to play or pause the video.
- Rewind/Fast-forward: Press the right arrow key to jump forward 10 seconds or the left arrow key to jump back 10 seconds.
- Exit fullscreen: Press escape to exit fullscreen mode.
