------- Comment #2 from moriond at mac.com  2008-09-26 02:19 PDT -------
This replaced combination (where use of Control as the access key has been
replaced with the Control+Option combination)) does not work for any visually
impaired (or mobility impaired or dyslexic) Mac user who is using the built-in
VoiceOver Screen reader as an accessibility solution.  The basic VoiceOVer Keys
(or VO-keys) are the Control-Option combination, and none of the access keys I
listed in my report work if you turn VoiceOver on (Command-F5 to turn VoiceOver
on or off on desktop Macs and recent Mac laptops; older laptops may need to use
Fn-Command-F5 to toggle VoiceOver on or off).  Please try this.  VO-keys+I
(Control-Option-i) is the item chooser menu; VO-keys+F is the Find command  for
web page search navigation, etc. None of those access key combinations are
accessible to anyone using VoiceOver as an accessibility solution. Would it be
possible to use some other key combination like Option-Shift?  Could you please
get in touch with someone on the Mac accessibility team?
