I was trying to assist a blind user with something, and he cannot
use a mouse, so I was trying to do it all with keyboard shortcuts. I
ran into a problem when two menu items have the same shortcut.
According to the Appendix of the Writer Guide, the answer is to
press the shortcut combination a second time to move to the second
instance, but when I did that the selection did not move at all.
Once it got to the first instance of, for example, Alt+d, it stayed
on it no matter how many times I pressed it.
Did I miss something here? I thought the guide was clear, and it
seemed like a sensible solution, but I could not get it to work.
I'm not sure anyone can help without knowing which menu items you are
having problems with. But here's an idea. Once you have opened a menu
using Alt+character, you are in a different mode and, although
Alt+character usually works to select individual menu items, you need
use only the plain character. For example, Save in the File menu can
be reached by Alt+F, Alt+S - but more easily by Alt+F, S.
Once you have reached the relevant menu (using Alt), does pressing
plain D twice achieve what you need?
I trust this helps.
