JS Menu - 508 issue

All,

Below is the code for the menu, we are using. This only works for mouse hovering. I need to make it work with keyboard navigation too as per the 508 rules but I am not good in this.

Here is the code:


var ddsmoothmenu={

//Specify full URL to down and right arrow images (23 is padding-right added to top level LIs with drop downs):
arrowimages: {down:['downarrowclass', '/i/down.gif', 23], right:['rightarrowclass', '/i/blank.gif']},
transition: {overtime:300, outtime:300}, //duration of slide in/ out animation, in milliseconds
shadow: {enable:false, offsetx:5, offsety:5}, //enable shadow?
showhidedelay: {showdelay: 100, hidedelay: 200}, //set delay in milliseconds before sub menus appear and disappear, respectively

///////Stop configuring beyond here///////////////////////////

detectwebkit: navigator.userAgent.toLowerCase().indexOf("applewebkit")!=-1, //detect WebKit browsers (Safari, Chrome etc)
detectie6: document.all && !window.XMLHttpRequest,
css3support: window.msPerformance || (!document.all && document.querySelector), //detect browsers that support CSS3 box shadows (ie9+ or FF3.5+, Safari3+, Chrome etc)

getajaxmenu:function($, setting){ //function to fetch external page containing the panel DIVs
     var $menucontainer=$('#'+setting.contentsource[0]) //reference empty div on page that will hold menu
     $menucontainer.html("Loading Menu...")
     $.ajax({
          url: setting.contentsource[1], //path to external menu file
          async: true,
          error:function(ajaxrequest){
               $menucontainer.html('Error fetching content. Server Response: '+ajaxrequest.responseText)
          },
          success:function(content){
               $menucontainer.html(content)
               ddsmoothmenu.buildmenu($, setting)
          }
     })
},


buildmenu:function($, setting){
     var smoothmenu=ddsmoothmenu
     var $mainmenu=$("#"+setting.mainmenuid+">ul") //reference main menu UL
     $mainmenu.parent().get(0).className=setting.classname || "ddsmoothmenu"
