Accesskeys

Accesskeys make sites more accessible for people who cannot use a mouse. They are keyboard shortcuts that replace the need to use the mouse for navigation. Here is the list of Accesskeys used on this site.

  • Jump to main navigation [Accesskey 'n']
  • Jump to main content [Accesskey 's']
  • Jump to accessibility page [Accesskey '0']
  • Jump to contact page [Accesskey '9']
  • Jump to home/front page [Accesskey '1']

These accesskeys have been chosen to follow the UK Government website guidelines.

Navigation shortcuts

At the start of every page is a short menu that allows you to jump directly to the most important parts of the page, including main navigation and content. Each of these also has an access key associated with it. Sighted users who use the keyboard to navigate will see these links appear on screen when using the Tab key to navigate through the page.
