I cannot reach the comment tools without a mouse. Why? The only way to make those visible is on :hover. Since I had to fight all the day with WordPress’ broken new menus I don’t want to use a mouse (my fingers hurt, I cannot stretch them anymore).

enter image description here

So, my request is: Make it better than the UI agnostic guys from WP. Make WPSE accessible. :)

  • Is this specific to WPSE, or to all SE sites? If this pertains to all SE sites, I suggest searching and then asking on meta.stackoverflow.com Feb 27, 2012 at 14:58
  • @tnorthcutt It’s not specific to WPSE. But we were told once to ask meta question here first.

There was a post on official blog today Stack Exchange Keyboard Shortcuts that says while keyboard shortcuts are not integrated yet, there is Official keyboard shortcuts user script available right now and until it's implemented in site itself.

    I use Opera – many of these shortcuts are already taken in my browser or they just don’t work. In my example it is impossible to vote on a comment. Shortcuts don’t help here.

  • @toscho Opera is far less than 1% of all usage on our network, so unfortunately conflicts that are specific to Opera are not a priority. Now if it conficted on IE, Firefox, Chrome, or even in some cases Safari.. Feb 8, 2012 at 22:18
  • @JeffAtwood Keyboard accessibility is bad in all browsers: No or almost invisible focus styles, hidden elements which are accessible to mouse users only … Opera can handle the network sites actually better than Firefox or IE because it offers usable focus styles and spatial navigation. But it is still not good enough and rather frustrating.
