Office for Mac - No Alt Key Shortcuts
I'm an assistive technology instructor for the visually impaired. I have the opportunity of teaching my students on Windows as well as MacOS, whichever they are comfortable with. In my recent experiences with Office for Mac, not just Word, I am noticing that there are no "alt key" shortcuts like there are in Windows. For example, on Windows, I can tell my student to press Alt+h, 7 to change between the different cases; or Alt + n, t to bring up the Insert Table user interface.
Building this functionality into Office for Mac would be a huge benefit for users and instructors alike. Navigating the ribbon with VoiceOver is very cumbersome for my MacOS students hand having the same functionality as the Windows counterpart would be very helpful.

I have low vision. Used to be excel power user on PC but now have a mac for work. There are hundreds of key sequences (e.g. Alt+h O R for rename wksheet) that I can't use now on mac. Super painful to use Excel now. Starting to tool up on Google Sheets because of this
