Customizable shortcuts

This feature would provide customizable shortcuts for webpages that allow users to jump to the content that they need. For example, pressing “S” may always jump to the Search box on any page, while “C” would jump to contact information, etc.

One method for doing this could be to leverage ARIA roles to develop consistent shortcuts. The user could define personalized keystroke combinations that always jump to a defined and common ARIA role, such as where “role=search.”
