Access keys, sometimes termed 'Hot-keys', are one means of increasing the accessibility of a website. They are keyboard short-cuts for users of the site that can not or prefer not to use the mouse. Access keys are activated in different ways depending upon which browser you are using.
Explorer: ALT + [access key] + Enter.
Firefox 2.0: ALT + SHIFT + [access key]
Mozilla: ALT + [access key].
Macintosh: CTRL + [access key].
Thus, if you want the contact details for the NEI team then press ALT + 9 + Enter if you are using Explorer, or just ALT + 9 if you are using Mozilla, or ALT + SHIFT + 9 if you are using Firefox 2.0, or just CTRL + 9 if you are using a Mac. The access keys defined below have been chosen to conform to current W3C and UK government accessibility standards and also so as not to clash with existing default Explorer and Mozilla browser menu access key short-cuts. If these key assignments cause problems with some users' pre-assigned access key short-cuts, or if you have any other suggestions for ways to improve the accessibility or improvement of the NEI site, please let us know.
