What Are Access Keys and How Do I Use them?

Access keys
The UK Government Access Keys Standard has been applied to this site. These provide a keyboard shortcut for users wishing to go directly to specific parts of the site and help those who do not use a pointing device, such as a mouse. A subset of the standard has been used and the access keys are defined as follows:
 
1 - Home page
3 - Site map
4 - Search this site
5 - FAQs
6 - Help
8 - Terms and conditions
9 - Feedback form
0 - Access key details
 
How to use access keys
Access keys work slightly differently depending on which browser and type of computer you are using - this is a summary of the main different ways:
 

    * If you are using Microsoft Internet Explorer 4 on a PC, press 'alt' and the access key character at same time
    * If you are using Microsoft Internet Explorer 5 or newer on a PC, press 'alt' and the access key character at the same time, then press the enter key
    * If you are using Microsoft Internet Explorer 5 on an Apple Macintosh, press 'control' and the access key character at the same time

This accessibility initiative is also supported by Netscape 6; use the 'alt' key on a PC, or the 'ctrl' key on an Apple Macintosh
