[Umbrella] a11yhelp dialog needs attention

Description (last modified by Anna Tomanek)

There are several things concerning the dialog that should be investigated/fixed/re-factorized:

  1. Keyboard button labels are not consistent

    Editor Context Menu Press Shift+Ctrl+F10 or APPLICATION KEY to open context-menu. Then move to next menu option with TAB or DOWN ARROW. Move to previous option with SHIFT+TAB or UP ARROW. Press SPACE or ENTER to select the menu option. [...]

This is because some labels are hard-coded (upper case) and some are generated from langfiles (lower case). #11196 allowed translation of keys and we should take advantage of that feature. All hard-coded labels must be converted into dynamic ones.

  1. We must verify whether help strings still match editor features. Some of them may be outdated/irrelevant/misleading. If necessary, some new ones should be written.
  1. Some instructions are too complicated, some are unclear, e.g. lots of translators do not understand the MagicLine-related texts so we should revise the contents overall.
  1. We must investigate a11y aspect of the dialog, e.g. compatibility with screen readers (JAWS). Perhaps <kbd> tags would be suitable here and there.

Related tickets we could also take into consideration:

  • #8490: Plugins should extend a11yhelp to make the dialog dynamic and (build/editor)-dependent. At the moment a11yhelp creates a delusion that some features are enabled while, in fact, the plugins to which they belong are not even loaded.
  • #9638: "Press ALT 0 for help" iframe voice label makes no sense when a11yhelp is not loaded (i.e. basic build).
  • #10929: Spelling Mistakes on Accessibility Instructions dialog.

We'll not work on entire problem in upcoming releases, so I'm removing milestone. We can have its parts handled though, but separate tickets are needed.
