Provide Keyboard Support for Accessibility
As a keyboard user I would like to be able to activate features which are currently only available to mouse users.
For example I would like to tab to a line plot data point to expose the tooltip balloons. I would also like to be able to use my keyboard to activate the links which are currently mouse click only.
This is now implemented in the Accessibility module: http://www.highcharts.com/docs/chart-concepts/accessibility

RE: Torstein Hønsi's comment
Am I correct that in the experiment shared that the spacebar has not been enabled? Or is the spacebar functionality only available to specific browser(s)?
Hi Ted, we have done some experiments on keyboard control previously. See for example http://jsfiddle.net/highcharts/8azm184u/1/.
