The following guidelines have been considered in designing this website:
Using your keyboard and mouse
This section details how to navigate a web page using just the keyboard, and explains how special shortcuts known as 'access keys' can make keyboard navigation easier.
Tabbing around a web page using the keyboard
Using the keyboard to browse the web can be a useful alternative to using the mouse to navigate a page.
Pressing the 'Tab' key while on a web page will select the next link on the page. You can press 'Tab' repeatedly to get to the chosen link. The selected link is indicated by the dotted border around it.
Once your chosen link is selected, you can trigger it by pressing the 'Enter' key on your keyboard. You can move backwards through links by pressing 'Shift' and 'Tab' together.
Using access keys to navigate a website
Access keys are essentially keyboard shortcuts on a website that give a keyboard or screen-reader user quick and easy access to all the main areas of the site.
Depending on the user's browser software, access keys are usually pressed in combination with other keys such as ALT (on Windows) or CTRL (on Mac) followed by 'Return'. Please note that your browser may or may not support access keys. Please consult your browser documentation for further details.
