I came across this post:
https://datatables.net/reference/option/buttons.buttons.key

And I found it really useful as an implementation of keyboard shortcuts for doing the likes of copying, downloading as excel, printing, toggling column visibility etc

My question is, what would be the best way to achieve keyboard page changing via the right left keys, or ctrl/shift/alt + right left keys?

Searching the forums I came across this as well:

Does this legacy based code work just as well in the newer version of DT?

I also came across this:
https://datatables.net/extensions/keytable/examples/initialisation/simple.html

But it seems the page change on keypress only happens at the end or beginning of a celled table, and is basically tabbing through all the cells, which isn't the exact functionality I'm looking for.
