access key for menu items

Post by oldlady » Wed Sep 01, 2010 4:26 pm

As usability should be a major feature of Joomla! 1.6 we suggest the integration of access keys for the menu items.
In Joomla! 1.5 existst a core hack for this:
http://docs.joomla.org/index.php?title= ... ccess_Keys
This allows enteing an access key for every menu item and this feature shpuld be part of Joomla! 1.6.

Futhermore it must be possible to show the access keys at the front end in a manner that also blind people (screenreaders) can use them.

I totally agree with oldlady, I have been waiting for years for these to be implemented and it's not hard to do. They really should be part of Joomla's core; I have to hard code my accessibility menu into my template index.php - which is not a good solution for something as powerful as Joomla.
