Is it possible to create a keyboard shortcut for a program that doesn't seem to have one?

I'm doing a bunch of work on coding qualitative interviews using a program called Atlas/ti. I can't seem to find any way to do coding (assigning codes to a quotation) without using the mouse. This is driving me crazy because I have tried to train myself to go without a mouse as much as possible. Having only done a small number of interviews, I can already see the shoulder/arm/wrist pain starting. I have miles of interviews to go.
I don't think this program does keyboard shortcuts (though I could be wrong! Maybe I'm wrong!). Is there any way to get around this? Any useful hacks that I don't know of? Ways to make a few button clicks into an Alt-something?
I know that I can write the developers a letter and encourage them to do this for future iterations but for the moment I need to keep on coding. What can I do?
