The Office of Fair Trading is committed to making its website accessible to a very wide range of users.
The site can be easily navigated from the links at the top and down the left and right hand side of the page for users with a mouse and keyboard.
"Access keys" have been included to assist users with disabilities when navigating their way through the web site. Essentially keyboard shortcuts, access keys provide quick and easy access to common pages without the need for a mouse.
A skip navigation facility has been provided on this site for the benefit of users with screen readers .
It can be implemented by using the skip navigation access key combination CTRL, ALT and S depending on which particular browser you are using.
Implementing skip navigation on any given page allows you to bypass the navigation areas and go directly to that page's main content.
Use of access keys differs according to browser:
Internet Explorer 5+: Hold down the ALT key and select the number/letter of the access key, then press ENTER
Internet Explorer 4: Hold down the ALT key and select the number/letter of the access key
Internet Explorer 5+ for Mac: Hold down the CTRL key and select the number/letter of the access key
Internet Explorer 4.5 for Mac: Access keys are not supported
