The ariaKeyShortcuts property of the Element interface reflects the value of the aria-keyshortcuts attribute, which indicates keyboard shortcuts that an author has implemented to activate or give focus to an element.


var ariaKeyShortcuts = element.ariaKeyShortcuts;
element.ariaKeyShortcuts = ariaKeyShortcuts


A DOMString.


In this example the aria-keyshortcuts attribute on the element with an ID of skip-link is set to "Alt+Shift+A". Using ariaKeyShortcuts we update the value to "Alt+Shift+M".

<a id="skip-link" href="#content" aria-keyshortcuts="Alt+Shift+A">Skip to content</a>
let el = document.getElementById('saveChanges');
console.log(el.ariaKeyShortcuts); // "Alt+Shift+A"
el.ariaKeyShortcuts = "Alt+Shift+M"
console.log(el.ariaKeyShortcuts); // "Alt+Shift+M"
