Access keys and how to use them in Vivaldi
Access keys let you use keyboard shortcuts to view some sites (like Wikipedia). In Vivaldi 2.2 we make it easy for you to discover this little-known accessibility feature.

Do you use access keys?
Nope, sorry... Mouse for me, not kb.

I use access keys (accelerator keys) on menus very often, but never on websites.
I want to see access keys on dialogues too. It is a big time-saver for accessing frequently used features. For example, to switch the position of Tabs from Top to Left, users should be able to type Alt+P, Alt+T, Tab, Alt+L
Menu Key (or Shift+F10), I, V, S =Insert Signature
Specs: AMD A10-6800K, 8 Gb on Win 10 64-bit build 17763.168 • Snapshot 2.2.1388.29 RC2 (64-bit)
The access keys do not always show up with the Page Action 'Inline Access Keys'. Does work on links (HTML element A) and fails on buttons (HTML element button and INPUT).
Bug: VB-47268 Webpage action 'Inline Access Keys' fails on other HTML elements than links

While reading this article I used Vivaldi with German locale but didn't notice that I was using the "wrong" browser (I had an English version open in background too), so I typed F2 and entered "show w" in English - and it worked!
It showed "Zugriffstasten der Webseite anzeigen" in the list!
I cross checked with German, just to make sure that QC isn't "English only" and typed "zug" - and it worked too!
Now we only need that for the settings window|page and helping people in the forums who use different locales will be much easier:
Just ask them to type the English expression and look at the results ...
@QuHno Nice and useful find

I think, the cheatsheet should be
modalModeless, to stay visible and be able to work with the page.
Mod Edit: To use the correct term and add a link.

@burbuja: Modal would be bad because modal would block typing on the site. I could imagine a web panel which always shows the shortcuts of the active tab instead.

@QuHno Yes, this is what I meant, but I used a wrong term for it. Or like the preferencies window at least.

Would be nice to support this as well.
@mrmamen This is not in HTML/WCAG standard, only a Firefox attribute.
And as i know W3C had noted the attribute as deprecated as only Mozilla has it. https://github.com/w3c/html/issues?utf8=✓&q=accessKeyLabel
