For this use case I think all we're interested in is whether or not the user is likely able to use a keyboard for shortcut keys. There may be some keyboard layouts that don't support certain shortcut keys (e.g. keyboards without a function key row) but handling that seems like a separate problem (as does tailoring the shortcut key descriptions to match platform conventions).

Even if the shortcut key is just <kbd>a</kbd> you're not likely to use it as a shortcut key on a virtual keyboard, but you are on a physical keyboard.
