menu: accelerator prompts should be spoken by screen reader

If an accelerator prompt has been added to a menu item, it should be spoken by the screen reader.

Note that just adding accelKey="value" onto a menu item does NOT implement the accelerator behavior - the developer is responsible for the key event handler to support this.

Closing this. When accelKey attribute is added to a menuitem, the value is actually added into the menu item text and is spoken by the screen reader as the menu item description. tested with FF 3.5 and JAWS 10.
