- 'Press TAB' – cycles forward through screen options and control buttons
- 'Press SHIFT + TAB' - cycles backward through screen options and control buttons

Voice Activation Control in Fullscreen
Due to security restrictions of the Adobe Flash Player, keyboard control is disabled in fullscreen; this means voice activation control is also affected. You can watch programmes in fullscreen using voice activation software but to use keyboard control commands you must exit fullscreen. To exit fullscreen use the "press escape key" keystroke command.
The Popout player may be used as an alternative to fullscreen. Selecting the “large size” button will scale the player window to its maximum available size. This view, unlike fullscreen, is fully keyboard accessible and therefore can also be used via voice activation keystroke commands.
