Hi :)
I am wondering if anyone here has been able to have a go to find out
which way they prefer to try to help Niklas with his really good work
in this area.
Regards from
Tom :)

So the change is in the daily builds of LibreOffice. I would like to
encourage you to try it out and see what you think. I will not push it
backwards towards LibreOffice 4.4 or earlier at this point, since I think it
might be good to discuss if this really is what we want.

Exposing the keyboard shortcuts as a part of menu names is what
traditionally is recommended and what most of the applications is doing (not
counting ribbon based applications). However looking at ribbon based
applications like Word or Explorer seem to indicate that only the
accelerators is exposed but not the keyboard shortcuts.
The main problem with exposing the keyboard shortcut is that if the
accelerator is set to be announced it is announced directly after the
keyboard shortcut, making everything a bit hard to hear. Also if we append
it to the announcement of the menu item it will always be announced.

Again please try out one of the daily builds and let me know what you think.
For example this one
The daily build can be installed alongside your current LibreOffice
installation and will be installed with the name LibreOfficeDev instead of
just LibreOffice.
