shortcut keys for touch up reading order tool
Shortcut keys already exist if you have a screen reader enabled. If you could put in tooltips giving us those keys, it would speed up manually tagging files tremendously.
We escalated the this request to the higher management. We don’t have a plan to provide this feature for now but We have kept it in our radar and would implement it in the near future.

Under the accessibility toolbar, there's a touch up reading order tool.
Utilizing NVDA, you can hear that the text key has a keyboard shortcut of alt-x, which speeds up selecting of text. I did not see anywhere that this is documented except using a screen reader. I'll also point out that none of the other tools have a working shortcut key.
Imagine a typical magazine or textbook page which may have inline pictures, 2 columns of text, perhaps a table or a rounded callout. Marking it as text with a hotkey where there might be 10 text areas in the document would reduce the number of clicks by 50%, and will leave your mouse on the document you are remediating. Since in this case I may have to ctrl-click to unselect some portion of the callout, your hand is typically on the keyboard anyway, and it's simply more efficient.
It would be helpful if you finished adding the shortcut keys for Figure, Headings (at least 1-3), form field, and background. It would be great if they were documented in the Touch Up Reading Order dialog somewhere, I suggested a tooltip, but whatever makes the most sense.
