Slideshow app has several keyboard shortcuts, which can help you to control the app directly from your device. You can use the shortcuts from connected USB keyboard, remote control (if your Android device has one) or even on screen keyboard (if you can open it 😃).

If you want to disable these keyboard shortcuts, login through web interface, click on menu Setting – Device settings and check “Disable keyboard”.
