Keyboard access information

We have provided a series of keyboard shortcuts intended to help users who have difficulty in using pointing devices such as a mouse.

This web site uses the UK Government access key system and the following information summarises each of the keyboard shortcut commands available to you.

Depending on your browser type use one of the following:

A. With Windows-based systems, in general, press the "Alt" key and the relevant access key:

  • if you are using Microsoft Internet Explorer version 4 then press "Alt" and the relevant number/letter at the same time
  • if you are using Microsoft Internet Explorer version 5 or 6 then press "Alt" and the relevant number/letter, then press the "Enter" key
  • if you are using Netscape version 6 or later, or Mozilla, then press "Alt" and the relevant number/letter at the same time
