Rich text editor- keyboard trap for accessibility users
A screen with a Rich Text Editor will trap keyboard users within the editing text box. The user can tab into the text box, but cannot tab out of it to move focus to controls outside of the rich text editor.
Is there a way to fix this issue where the user can either press TAB out of the editing text box or press ESC to move out of the Rich Text Editor?
We do not want to add the PegaWAI ruleset to resolve this issue, since we do not want all features included in the ruleset enabled in our framework.

Thank you for your response! I was able to review the link you sent and the resolution requires the PegaWAI accessibility ruleset to be added and enabled. For right now, we do not want to use this ruleset.
I was able to figure out a keyboard shortcut to exit out of the rich text editor by pressing ESC + Tab but I am not sure if this is a common practice and would not want to leave it as is if it is not best practice for accessibility.
Would you happen to know if this is the expected behavior for exiting out of rich-text editors via keyboard?
