Could OnKeyPress be used in conjunction with OnClick to achieve accessibility [assuming we are excepting the JavaScript enabled issue]?

I just went back to check my copy of Constructing Accessible Websites, and
on pp.385-386 there is specific reference to OnClick being their
recommendation instead of OnChange.  Am I missing something here that would
change that recommendation?  What would you all recommend if not those two?

Onclick is even worse. At least with onchange, once you see
the dropdown options and then change your mind, you can bail
out safely provided that you don't change the selection. Onclick
will kick in whether you've made a change or not.

Point is, don't do it. Even more so when it comes to onclick.
