I'm building a site for people with visual impaireness and I would like to use SS for it, since that way, the NGO can do a lot of the administration work afterwards by means of the SS CMS.

There are some rules to follow, and in this context I have a specific question.
The frontend of the website should be manipulated by visual impaired people with or WITHOUT a mouse. So people can point with the mouse to a tab, or use the TAB forward key and TAB backward key on the keyboard to move between the tabs of a Menu. With the focus on a tab in the menu and pushing the ENTER key, they arrive in the corresponding submenu with the same option to move around.

When entering the website, the focus is automatically on the first tab of menu. Pushing the ESC always returns the focus on the first tab of menu.
