From a proposal from Jim Allan. Email comments on Action 183

Current:

4.1.10 Specify preferred keystrokes: The user can override any keyboard shortcut including recognized author supplied shortcuts (e.g accesskeys) and user interface controls, except for conventional bindings for the operating environment (e.g., for access to help)

4.1.11 User Override of Accesskeys: The user can override any author supplied content keybinding (i.e. access key) that the user agent can *recognize*. The user must have an option to save the override of user interface keyboard shortcuts so that the rebinding persists beyond the current session. (Level AA)

Proposed

4.1.10 User Override of Author Keyboard Commands: The user can override any recognized author supplied keyboard shortcuts (e.g accesskeys). (Level A)

4.1.11: Keyboard Command Override Persistence: The user must have an option to save the override of all keyboard shortcuts so that the rebinding persists beyond the current session. (Level A) [this may be covered in 4.5.1 Save Settings)

4.1.12 Keyboard Command conflict: The user agent should inform the user when a specified keybinding in content or the user interface is missing from the user's keyboard and allow an override.

4.1.13 Keyboard Command Reset: The user has the option to restore all keyboard overrides to their default values.
