They must not have tested with Window-Eyes.  While in MSAA mode, alt-S
reads the status line, and alt-0 through alt-9 read part or all of the
current window.  This may improve in the next release; 

under the current release, 4.2.1.1, the user could go into the Window-Eyes
control panel and undefine hotkeys for windows 0 through 9 and free up some
of those AccessKeys.  But alt-S is not user-configurable at present.
