One of the major issues raised in analyzing Sakai Accessibility was difficulty using CKEditor with a keyboard and/or screen reader.
The problem is that keyboard shortcuts/commands are needed to be able to access the CKEditor menu. This is not apparent to the user, so appropriate contextual help is needed.
Karen McPhaul has suggested adding a keyboard icon (similar to the one in Gradebook) above every CKEditor in the Sakai UI.
Of note, this is similar to how Canvas approaches the issue of keyboard access for their editor: https://community.canvaslms.com/thread/18102-shortcut-keys
The suggested icon should be in the tab order before the user enters the editor's text area, and when selected, open an appropriately keyboard- and screen reader-accessible modal dialog showing the necessary keyboard commands for the editor.
Below is a mock-up image showing a proposed location for the icon.
I suggest the following text alternative: Open dialog to show Rich-Text Editor hotkeys. I will raise this suggestion and discuss potential wording for the dialog at the next Accessibility Working Group meeting.
