Access keys

Keyboard access is important for users who do not have the ability to use a pointing device, such as a mouse.

The top level menu of the web site has been constructed to allow users to bind keyboard strokes to actions using specific access keys. The second level of the menu can be navigated using the Tab key. Most common internet browsers such as Internet Explorer also allow you to use the Tab key (or sometimes Alt + Tab) to move through the interactive elements of a page (links and menu items). You can use this to navigate through menu items other than the top level menu.

The access keys for this web site are based on the UK Government accesskeys standard.
