Hello and Greetings,

Wanted to know whether implementation of shortcut keys for tasks such as jumping to next or  previous page,  closing the modal dialog by using escape key and providing quick access to the major functionality of the website or a software is mandate  under any WCAG  guideline? If yes,  which would be the correct guideline to map such things with?

Although I was not able to find any guideline that directly address this issue but a couple of SCs  that is 2.1.1 keyboard  and 2.4.5 multiple ways seems close.

Please share your thoughts.
