This page contains information on accessibility and tips for easier access.
Access keys and how to use them:
Many modern browsers support jumping to specific links or locations that have been defined for a Web site by typing "access keys." On Windows, you press ALT plus an access key; on Macintosh, you press Control plus an access key.
So, for example, if you press ALT (Control on a Mac) plus the number 1 on any page of this Web site, you will go back to the Home page. (For some browsers, you need to click somewhere on the Web page first for access keys to work. Also, on some browsers, certain access keys work, while others do not.)
All pages on icoph.org use the following access keys:
Access key 1: Home page
Access key 2: Skip navigation, go to main content
Access key 3: Find: navigation tips, link to Site Map, help
Access key 4: Search: text box for entering the word or phrase to be found
Access key 5: Search Submit (you should enter the word or phrase to be found (access key 4) first)
Access key 7: News
Access key 8: Terms and Conditions and Privacy
Access key 9: Contact / Feedback
Access key 0: Accessibility information and list of access keys (this page)
Pressing the Tab key for the first time on any page of icoph.org takes you to input area of the Search form, where you can enter a word or words you want to find on the site.
Pressing the Tab key a second time selects the "Go" button for the Search form. Either press the Go button or "Enter" to search for the words you have entered.
Pressing the Tab key again repeatedly will select each link on the page, starting with the navigation links on the top of each page and then on the left. If you press enter, you will follow the link selected.
For users with screen readers or other navigation tools, there is a link toward the top of each page labeled "Skip Navigation." It allows you to skip over the navigation links and go directly to the start of content.
You can also Skip Navigation by pressing ALT plus 2 (Control plus 2 on a Mac).
Search and other navigation aids
In addition to the Search function (access key 4) in the upper right of each page, the icoph.org offers a variety of other navigational aids. These include:
* Advanced Search
* A site map, which lists all of the primary sections and subsections of the site and most individual pages.
* Other standardized navigational links at the top, left, right and bottom of each page.
