Access Keys

People with limited mobility may have a hard time controlling a mouse to click on links, and tabbing through menus can be slow going. The W3C introduced the accesskey attribute to enable users to select the appropriate key on their keyboards and navigate to a particular link.

Windows users can navigate with the accesskey feature by typing ALT+Accesskey. On the Mac, you would use Ctrl+Accesskey. Internet Explorer users may also need to hit the “enter” key to activate a link.
