I presume you know that besides implementing accesskeys, Opera 8.0 offers  
spatial navigation so you can move around the screen, and the ability to  
configure your keyboard shortcuts, or to use voice commands

"up, right, right, open link..." (if you happen to have both Windows and  
work in english. I was impressed that it understands my not-very-strong  
australian accent - I have had massive problems in the past with systems  
not doing that).

So you can mix voice and "keyboard" navigation pretty easily, if that is  
helpful.
