How to make RoyalSlider respond to arrow keys pressed during a transition?

Arrow key presses are not captured if they occur during a transition, so you can't, for example, press the arrow key in quick succession to quickly flip through slides.

Clicking arrows or thumbnails works more responsively, so that if you click the "Next" arrow multiple times, the slider responds instantly. So you can skip through slides even if a transition isn't complete.

You can try this, for example, on this slider:

Is there a way to get RS to respond instantly to key presses?

Put another way, if the transition between slides is 1 second:

  • Clicking the arrow button x times in 1 second will advance the slider x slides.
  • Pressing an arrow key x times in 1 second will advance the slider 1 slide.
