New keyboard accessibility plugin demo - Image Viewer design

Hi Jan,

That's an excellent suggestion, but I don't think the keyboard plugin
supports hotkeys at the moment. We can add hotkeys separately, but may risk
confusing it with the functionality of the keyboard plugin. I think there
was some talk about hotkeys, but I'm not sure if that is a feature that is
planned. I would support the idea of adding hotkey support to the keyboard
plugin - it seems logical.

I think we should leave hotkeys out of the demo for now.
