The Cambridgeshire Mencap website has been built with the intention of making the content accessible to the widest range of visitors, regardless of disability or impairment. This has been achieved by adhering to best practices, such as compliance with W3C standards, and by careful reference to the standards.
Keyboard shortcuts are intended to help users who have difficulty in using pointing devices such as a mouse. These are generally described as access keys.
The access keys we use on this site are as follows:
S – Skip navigation
T – Go back to the top of the page
1 – Home page
0 – Access key details
Depending on your browser type use one of the following:
Internet Explorer 5+: Hold down the ALT key and select the number/letter of the access key, then press ENTER.
Firefox/Mozilla for PC: Hold down the ALT key and select the number/letter of the access key.
Safari/Firefox/Mozilla for Mac: Hold down the CTRL key and select the number/letter of the access key (Note: if you are utilising ‘Spaces’ in OS X with Safari, you will have to hold down CTRL and ALT with the number/letter of the access key).
All content images used in this site include descriptive alt attributes.
This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout. This site uses only relative font sizes, compatible with the user-specified “text size” option in visual browsers. If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets at all, the content on this site should still be readable.
