We have attempted to follow relevant standards and good practice for accessibility and usability while developing the University website, including the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.
We have also tested the site extensively in a wide range of browsers and settings to ensure the site functionality is available to as many users as possible.
Access keys help users who find it difficult to use pointing devices (a mouse) to navigate. They use a combination of keys and numbers to navigate around the website.
Windows users will find access keys take precedence over application commands which can still be accessed from the keyboard by first typing the menu shortcut key (usually ALT) followed by the letter or number corresponding to the desired menu item.
To use the access keys
- Windows browsers: ALT + Access key then press 'Enter' if using Internet Explorer, ALT + Shift + Access key if using Firefox
- Mac browsers: CTRL + Access key
- 0 = Home
- 1 = 2012 Legacy
- 2 = Coaching & Volunteering
- 3 = Funding
- 4 = Workplace Sport
- 5 = Courses
- 6 = Sports
- 7 = About Us
- 8 = Contacts
- 9 = News
Users of screen reader will find that abling their software will allow the site to be navigated. This can also be triggered using the access keys mentioned above.
If you come across a part of our site that is difficult to use or could be improved in terms of accessibility or usability we apologise and would be very grateful if you could contact us here.
