Keyboard navigation

Is there any ongoing work on implementing keyboard navigation in e.g. the start menu? I would find it very convenient to be able to navigate that menu and its sub-menus with single key strokes, e.g. G for Graphics, I for Internet, and so on. Here is the feature request for this: https://sourceforge.net/p/lxde/feature-requests/219/

What script can I use to prevent a student from navigating forward and backward through my stack using the keyboard arrows? I want them to preform a task and type in the answer to progress through the stack - not be able to jump from card to card using the arrow keys.
Ive looked through the documentation and cannot find anything relating to this.
Thanks,
Doug

Is this related to the start menu?

The openbox root menu has support for keyboard shortcuts.
You are already using openbox (it's LXDE's windowmanager), but you'd need to activate the root menu, and preferable make it dynamically-updating.
