We don't use access keys
Many assistive technologies make use of the keyboard for
performing important tasks, such as navigation, selecting buttons,
submitting forms and so on.
Some websites provide the user with additional functions via the
keyboard, but we believe this is not yet widely supported or
understood by the majority of users, lacks any standard across
different sites and is often detrimental to those users who need to
make use of the keyboard for fundamental tasks.
