I'm looking to solve a workflow issue; editing a selected layer's text without having to go back to the mouse each time. You can change the selected layer via keyboard shortcuts, so if you could also enter editing mode through the keyboard you could quickly shift through items to edit them.
Is there a keyboard shortcut (or alternative method) that can be used to quickly enter text editing mode of a selected text layer?

Here is an idea... has its downfalls though...
Edit the text you wish in one text area.
Hit control + s to save.
It will exit that text and you can then click the next with text tool.
Obviously its not perfect but most of the time when I am editing multiple text blocks this works.
Just select the " T " on the toolbar on your left and click on top of the text you want to EDIT! Edit it click check-mark on top and move to the next text, this way you don't even need to go on finding the layers etc...
Much easier than all other suggestions :P
hope this helps
The shortcut to popup the edit text window is: Ctrl / Cmd+T, after that for each effects on the text edit window there are shortcuts available. Please refer the below link. Hope it will helpful.

@Scott and @ckpepper02 : the OP asked for a way to do it WITHOUT using the mouse. So, your answers that require clicking the mouse are clearly not appropriate.
@christian : If you want to edit keyboard shortcuts, press CTRL-ALT-SHIFT-K to bring up that menu.
Unfortunately I've looked through all options in this menu and it doesn't seem possible to assign a keyboard shortcut to the "edit text" action. I'll try some more things and let you know.
I've discovered that the contextual menu for the Type tool has as the first item "Edit Type…", but I've no clue how to either invoke that menu via keyboard shortcuts or assign a keyboard shortcut to that menu item.
Double-click the thumbnail icon for the text layer. This will highlight the text for editing.
I think that's about as close to a shortcut as you'll get.
Only shortcut I know of is:
Select your text layer
Click on the text object you want to edit
I don't think that there is a shortcut to do this. You could possibly create a custom shortcut for it though. It definitely would be useful, as of now I just double click the text icon and hit Ctrl / Option > Enter / Return when I'm done to exit editing mode.
