This seems to be a Wayland issue. Sticky keys works for me if I log in to an "Ubuntu on Xorg" session, but not if I log in to "Ubuntu".

Not sure which is the affected package, but quite sure it's not ubuntu-docs. Changing to gnome-control-center for now.

This does not appear to be a security vulnerability so I am unmarking it as Public Security.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. The issue you are reporting is an upstream one and it would be nice if somebody having it could send the bug to the developers of the software by following the instructions at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/Upstream/GNOME. If you have done so, please tell us the number of the upstream bug (or the link), so we can add a bugwatch that will inform us about its status. Thanks in advance.

The above fix is scheduled for release upstream in the next preview release of gnome-shell 3.27 (3.27.2?). It doesn't appear to be backported to 3.26 but that would appear unlikely (I am guessing) due to the large number of patches involved.
