Hello Paul,

Glad it worked out. I also agree that organized landing pages with left navigation is better.

Hi Rabab, thanks for that example. It does work well with VoiceOver, a bit differently than Knowbility's but likely the 2nd best example I've seen so far.

There really is so much work and code to put into making a accessible hover navigation menu that works with arrow keys. I'm not really a fan of hover nav menus and would instead avoid them and use well organized landing pages for each section of a site.
