Is this connected to bug #769464, which confusingly appears to be a
pending change from "b" to "r" (the opposite of what you have above)?

The text also has a debian-l10n-english nit: "an" before "usable"
should be "a", or in this case preferably just omitted - "and gaining
usable keyboard access".
