Most standard keybindings are documented in the User Guide
and repeated in the Accessibility Guide.  Non-disabled folks
who just want some keyboard shortcuts aren't going to think
to look in the AG.

This is the first I've heard of the Ctrl+Alt+PageUp/PageDown
think.  Somebody should have notified the documentation team.
We can't document things if we don't know about them.
