Currently ARIA does not do this stuff AFAIK. There is some limited
keyboard behaviour mapping for role=button in a few AT's.

And gesture mapping in certain touchscreen/mobile ATs too - particularly important, as any custom keyboard handling the dev may or may not have implemented wouldn't work there anyway, so AT attempt to understand widgets based on their roles a bit more and provide built-in swipe/tap gestures for certain constructs.
