Make keyboard controls more discoverable
|Reported by:||mgifford||Owned by:||s.kups|
Took a few of us very experienced web developers to realize that the way we're supposed to get into the menu without a mouse was to use Alt+0. Once that was figured out we were able to proceed a bit better.
In evaluating the implementation on Drupal 8 we realized it was difficult to find - https://drupal.org/node/1904986
We'd stumbled upon the CNTR+B & but it should have been easier to identify. It would be very useful to build in a tooltip so that when you hover or focus on an icon that the title & keyboard shortcuts pop up. This is a UI pattern that has been common on the desktop for a while.
Is it possible to change the combinations? It would be useful both for other languages, but also that some assistive technology has reserved keyboard shortcuts.
