how to make popup menus accessible through keyboard - Macromedia Fireworks

Can anyone please give me any ideas to have pop up menus Accessible not only through mouseover/mouseout events but also with keyboard or onFocus/onBlur events ?? I need that becuase the site i am working needs to fully Accessible according to WAI... I tried to modify the mm_menu.js but i couldn't get it as i am not a good javascript coder. Also if anyone knows any other scripts available freely to use...please let me know. Thanks in advance. Rajani....

    raj:

    You cannot make the pop-up menus accessible. Not only that, but they will
    not be spidered, either. All in all, they are a very poor choice for a
    site.

    Try these methods, please -

    A decent sitemap is a good alternative, or at least offer a set of text
    links at the bottom of each page.
