Could you add keyboard shortcut key for all development sliders. I thinking that it would be easier way to handle development sliders if I could press some keyboard shortcut to select slider and then I could use a mouse wheel to adjust it. On this way development could be done without look the sliders.

I'd vote for that. 

In the meantime, there's a number of options out there that might help, depending on your operating system. Personally I like a wacom tablet / contour shuttle pro combination, where I float over the float with one hand (does require a quick glance) and then turn the dial on the shuttle to change the slider value while looking at the photo. 

Keyboard wise, motibodo and pfixer both have software that adjusts Lightroom sliders direct from the keyboard. There's also other midi controller varieties like Loupedeck and LRControl that might be worth a look for you.

Thanks Victoria,

I have read a lot of Loupedeck and midi-devices but never used them. I tried to keep my desk so simple I can. I think that addition devices could be make my workflow more complicated. Keyboard and mouse is needed at any way. I have game keyboard with 18 extra buttons for LR and game mouse with 8 extra buttons for LR. These extra buttons help me much with LR.

Few words more about this slider selection and mouse wheel. It should not be impossible because actually LR has now similar zoom function. If you press ctrl you can zoom photo with mouse wheel. I dreaming that I can press some key and then adjust exposure slider with mouse wheel.
