try this code in a loaded js file:

odoo.define('web.aek_shortcuts', function (require) {
"use strict";

var core = require('web.core');
var form_widgets = require('web.form_widgets');
var FieldOne2Many = core.form_widget_registry.get('one2many');

var _t = core._t;
var QWeb = core.qweb;

var ctrl_count = 0;
$.ctrl_bind = function(key, namespace, callback, args) {
var ev = 'keydown.'+namespace;
$(document).on(ev, function(e) {
if(!args) args=[]; // IE barks when args is null
if((e.keyCode == key.charCodeAt(0) || e.keyCode == key) && e.ctrlKey) {
callback.apply(this, args);
return false;

$.ctrl_unbind = function(name) {
var ev = 'keydown.'+name;

init: function() {
var self = this;
this._super.apply(this, arguments);
var context = this.dataset.context.eval();
if(context.shortcut != undefined){
self.ctrl_count = ctrl_count;
$.ctrl_bind(context.shortcut, this.ctrl_count, function() {
destroy: function() {
this._super.apply(this, arguments);

It may require more extensions but this is the first draft

define the shorcut in the context like context="{'shortcut': 'I'}"
