    accesskeys Link to this post

    Has anyone done any work to add accesskeys to menus etc in silverstripe.

    I just wondered if anyone could share any experience or thoughts as its something I've been asked about for accessibility compliance.

    Regards

    no, we don't have any ongoing work considering accesskeys right now, but would be a great addition!

    some thoughts:
    - would be nice to have a php-API where third-party modules can register (and overwrite?) keys
    - automatically generated overview of all available access-keys would be nice (popup inside CMS or div inside website)
    - not limited to CMS-purposes, so optimally can be used for website-development as well
    - needs a way to hook into formfield-rendering
    - pages could have a formfield in the CMS for providing an access-key

    considerations:
    - if we rely on key-combinations (e.g. shift+A), we can't use the plain-jane w3c recommendations (<label accesskey="U">), would probably need some javascript-API?

    anybody keen to give this a shot?
