Nearly finished chomping my way through 2.7 - here is sc 2.7.6 for your

Maybe this should move to 2.7.2 and everything else move down one.

2.7.6 (former 4.7.5) Direct activation: The user can move directly to 
and activate any operable elements in rendered content. (Level AA)

Intent of Success Criterion 2.7.6 (former 4.7.5) :

It is often difficult for some people to use a pointing device (the
standard method of direct navigation) to select links. In this case some
other form of direct selection - such as numbers or key combinations
assigned to important elements - should be available which can then be
accessed via the keyboard or speech control technology.

Examples of Success Criterion 2.7.6 (former 4.7.5) :

See example for 2.7.1: Discover navigation and activation keystrokes
