    keyboard nav_Flash MX 2004

      Hello,
      I've been trying to get the keyboard navigation to work with no success. What I want is for users (especially visually impaired) to be able to navigate using right and left buttons to progress through a slide show using Flash MX 2004.

      These are the instructions I've followed to the letter--what am I doing wrong?!

      1. Create an invisible button.
      2. Place button instance on stage.
      3. Select the instance and open the actions panel.
      4. In the Actions panel, enter on(keyPress "<Right>"){
      nextFrame();
      }

      This is from Chun and Garraffo's Macromedia Flash Advanced book. It's not an issue of formatting since much of the script is available from the drop-down menus in the Action script panel.

      Any help would be GREATLY appreciated since I've been struggling with this for weeks (searched many sites, tried many other scripts, etc.).

      Thanks!

      Natasha
