If I may chime in, toggling this option doesn't have any effect.  I
believe there is a second setting somewhere that keeps the shortcut
functional.  So far my investigations have led me to these glib2

  org.gnome.desktop.a11y.keyboard slowkeys-enable

But the setting above with `gsettings' also seem to be ignored (probably
because the menu you pointed to is a frontend for this option, and it is
the same issue).  My understanding is very little about desktop
configuration mechanisms, so I have put this on hold for a later time.
