#8490 confirmed New Feature

Ability to customize the contents of the a11yhelp dialog.

We can customize CKEditor to not display the collapse toolbar icon or the element path bar. However there is no way to remove the instructions for these features from the a11yhelp dialog.

It would be great if we could customize the a11yhelp contents to match the set of features that are available in different instances of the editor.

#11386 was marked as duplicate.

@wwalc points it out correctly that we have a fixed set of shortcuts that are reported despite appropriate being present or not. Plugins should report their shortcuts to keystrokeHandler and to a11yhelp


  1. Create basic present with a11yhelp plugin enabled.
  2. Press Alt + 0

The instruction in a dialog window shows the following:

Underline command
    Press CTRL+U

though underline button is not enabled and CTRL+U does not work.
