Which is precisely what the hardware vendors found was a problem because
people lost the manual or didn't know about it. They've spent twenty years
discovering it was a stupid idea can we therefore dismiss it in 20 minutes
instead ?

In addition for users with screenreader devices it would be helpful to know
when it hit a key remembering they don't have all the other visual clues
people rely upon.

All we need is "Hit [F10] for system menu"

it'll look like all the 

"Hit [F8] for RAID setup"

"Press [F4] to set your printer port on fire"

type messages they arelady expect on boot
