In NVDA's documents settings dialog, the report Spelling Errors checkbox has no accelerators.

Actually there are multiple issues in this dialog.
"Announce formatting changes after the cursor (can cause a lag)" also does not have a mnemonic.
Also "Report line numbers" and "Report links" are in conflict.

Actually there are much more inconsistencieswhen looking at all the settings dialogs. I am not sure we can afford such a drastic change so I am just attaching a patch instead of committing it now.

Peter, I'll leave this one up to you. I'm happy for it to be committed if it's tested. However, even though we haven't frozen strings yet, it might be too many string changes at this late stage. In that case, move it to 2010.3.

Personally, I don't think it's critical to have accelerators for every option in a dialog, only the most common ones, but I guess that's subjective.

Work in progress:
Repo: https://bitbucket.org/josephsl/nvda-dev
Branch: t793
@pvaner: I may have changed some shortcut assignments. Also, some other dialogs doesn't have shortcut keys for some items as well (t2600 concerns menu items, while this one is more towards individual gui/settingsDialogs file). Thanks.

Hi Joseph,

What is the current status of this, has this been completed and just needs review?
If it is not complete, it would be great if you could invest some time to get this done so that the ticket can be addressed/resolved.

Thanks,
Mesar

Hi,
Sure, please merge the changes (you might want to merge master first to make sure the last of these unbound labels are fixed). Thanks.

The original point of this ticket was to add a shortcut for the spelling errors option, but the scope was then changed several times. In order to satisfy the original request without waiting a few more years :), I'm narrowing the scope back to what it was originally. I don't think the "Announce formatting changes after the cursor" check box is used frequently enough to deserve a shortcut and it's the first one in the dialog anyway. Please file further tickets if you have good use cases as to why a particular option needs a new/changed shortcut.
Changes:
Changed title from "keyboard accelerators missing from Document settings dialog" to "Add keyboard accelerator for report spelling errors option"
