Accessibility

This website has been designed to be accessible to the widest possible number of users, including people with disabilities.

Accesskeys

Accesskeys are used throughout this site, in accordance with the UK government accesskeys standard, in the following way:

Accesskeys in Google Chrome: Alt then [Accesskey]
Accesskeys in Mozilla Firefox: Alt + Shift then [Accesskey]
Internet Explorer: Alt + [Accesskey] then Enter
Opera: Shift + Escape, then [Accesskey]

How do I use Accesskeys?

Each of the main areas has an Accesskey assigned to it. This means that you can use the keyboard to jump to any main area from anywhere else in the site. You don't need a mouse!

Accesskeys work slightly differently on PCs and Macs.

  • PC - Hold the 'Alt' key and the appropriate Accesskey at the same time, then press Return / Enter.
  • Mac - Hold the 'Cmd' key and the appropriate AccessKey at the same time.
