My apologies for today .. conflicting meeting.

Rich, please mention the following:

Regarding Issue 406

- https://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/Group/track/issues/406<https://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/Group/track/issues/406>

I'd like to add that this property can serve as invaluable source of information source for custom keyboard usage infos as part of the UI DOM
(e.g. containing strings like "Press F4 to open extended input options").

We highly want and need this since these cases are frequent in our products.

Additionally, this property offers a potential "correcting" option with respect to implementation of known patterns/roles and AT misassumptions how to use them. A prominent example is the Jaws "Press Ctrl+Tab to move between tabs" assumption for role="tablist" but the tablist navigation is implemented using Arrow keys to move between tabs for good reasons. So, the Jaws info would be misleading and there is no way to fix it without actively quering the UA aria-help property mapping by AT (e.g. using the MSAA accHelp string property).

But probably the best design here would be an additional

aria-keyhelp (string)

property to indicate AT that this role/element/control has implemented its own custom keyboard behavior and AT should leave its "guesses" based on the role and just speak what the respective property.

The mapping of this property (if present) should be done together with the aria-help property (if present) as concatenation of both string values into the e.g. MSAA accHelp property.
