Keyboard Controls for an International User Base

This talk was given at ViennaJS May 2017 by Manuel Matuzovic.

The UI Events specification comes with two new properties for keyboard events: key and code. They replace the previously existing (and still existing) charCode, keyCode, and which. It’s not just easier to work with keyboard events but it also improves accessibility significantly. Manuel will introduce the new API and illustrate why and how it’s important to an international user base.
