Another option (and the two are not mutually exclusive) is to have a page
that lists the site's accesskeys, and include a persistent link in the site
nav (a link with its accesskey clearly identified) to that page.

Another trick is this piece of CSS that displays assigned accesskeys, but
browser support for it is limited:

*  [accesskey]:after  {
   content : " <" attr(accesskey) ">";
