Accessibility

Most browsers support jumping to specific links by typing keys defined on the web site.

 

Access Keys

On Windows:

  • Firefox - press SHIFT + ALT + Access key Number
  • Internet Explorer - press SHIFT + ALT + Access key Number and then Enter
  • Opera - press SHIFT + Esc and a menu will appear, then simply press the number/letter you require.
  • Safari - doesn't support access keys.

On a Macintosh:

  • Firefox/Safari - press CTRL + Access key Number
  • Opera - press SHIFT + Esc and a menu will appear, then simply press the number/letter you require.

All pages on this site define the following access keys using similar shortcuts as the UK Government accesskeys standard:

  • Access key S - Skip navigation
  • Access key 0 - Accessibility
  • Access key 1 - Home page
  • Access key 2 - News/Blog
  • Access key 3 - Site map
  • Access key 4 - About us
  • Access key 5 - Contact us
  • Access key 8 - Terms and conditions

Access keys are not perfect (as detailed here - 'Using Accesskeys - Is it worth it?' ) so if they give you any problems please let us know.

 

 

Skip Navigation

On each page a 'skip to main content' link allows direct access past the navigation links to the page's main content, which should make navigation easier if you are using the keyboard or other input device to browse.
