Key sequences without inputting text

I want to use a key sequence to trigger a shortcut. Eg when I press command e s in succession I want btt to send “command shift v”. Note that this is in excel

However when I do this, the e and s are input to a cell, which interrupts the function. Is there a way to suppress key inputs to allow for this behavior? More generally I’m looking to create the alt menu access behavior from windows.

Not sure how alt menu works on windows, but key sequence can not suppress the input. Only normal keyboard shortcuts can.
