Accesskeys

Accesskeys are keyboard shortcuts that allow you to jump to specific areas of a website or webpage without using your mouse. We use numeric accesskeys:

  1. Homepage
  2. Skip to content
  3. Skip to navigation
  4. Site search
  5. Sitemap
  6. Contact us
  7. Accessibility

The usual way to use accesskeys is to press and hold the "ALT" key plus the "Accesskey" (for Windows/PC) or "CTRL" plus the "Accesskey" (for Mac). Some browsers do work differently.

Internet Explorer - Version 5 +

  • "ALT" + "Accesskey" + "Enter". For example, "ALT" + "1" highlights the "Home" link. Select "ENTER" to go to the Homepage

Netscape - Version 7 +

  • "ALT" + "Accesskey"

 

Firefox - Version 2.0 +

  • "ALT"+ "SHIFT" + "Accesskey". For example, "ALT" + "SHIFT" + "4" will place the cursor in the site search box.

Opera

  • Press "SHIFT" + "ESC" then release both keys and select the "Accesskey". For example, "SHIFT" + "ESC", release both keys and select "5" to go to the A-Z Index.

Safari

  • "CTRL" + "Accesskey".
