2.1.4 Character key short cuts

Hi all,

I have come up with a doubt regarding 2.1.4 character key shortcuts .
Could you please give me a good example of 2.1.4 SC.

In youtube, the letter "K" is the shortcut for play / Pause. In NVDA ,
"K" will take you to the next link. So, if you press "K" in youtube ,
it will take you to the next link rather than activating the Play /
Pause button. Is it a violation?

In Deque university, when we doing the course, "Alt + Ctrl + N " is
the command to go to the next page. But, if you are using NVDA, with
the provided key command, it will restart NVDA. It won't take you to
the next page.
What about it?

Please help me.
