AccessKeys

Accesskeys allow users to quickly jump to a section of the website or the current page by pressing a combination of keys on the keyboard. This can be of great assistance to those with limited mobility and to users of assistive technology such as screen readers. By default, accesskeys on this site are switched off, but if you would like to set an accesskey for any of the page elements listed below, simply check off which keys you wish to assign, enter the keys of your choice in the corresponding boxes, and save this preference. To then use the access key, check the chart below to see which combination of keys works for your browser and platform.
