Short answer: No

Long answer: Since all you're producing is a HTML page to the end user your are limited to the options in the OS and Web browser your visitor is using.

But: You can make a Windows application (if you want to limit your users to Windows) that will contain a web browser (Internet Explorer) and in the Windows application you can easily disable hot keys.
