I think this use needs further investigation for screen reader users. The
left- and right- arrow keys are used to step through words by JAWS for
example.

This example [1] was created using the Dynamic Accessible Web Content 
Roadmap [2].  It is fully supported by WindowEyes 5.5 and Firefox 1.5. 
While this example may not work with all assistive technologies today, my 
intent is to make certain that these new DHTML accessibility technologies 
are not prevented by WCAG 2.0 when they become more widely supported.
