Accessibility and keyboard browsing

Send by mail Share Ecoutez le texte avec ReadSpeaker

Not all users have a mouse or similar pointing device. Some people use the standard keyboard, a special keyboard or voice-entry system to browse links, activate page controls, etc.

If you are one of these people, then this page will be helpful.

To make browsing easier, we have integrated a number of keyboard shortcuts, called access keys. The generic shortcuts available on the website are the following:

  • 0: This page
  • 1: Return to the Home page
  • 2: Site map
  • 3: Search engine
  • 4: Contact us

The access keys may be activated by different combinations of keys, depending on your environment, operating system and browser.

  • Windows Internet Explorer: Press the Alt key and one of the access keys together (without using the numeric keypad) ad then press Enter;
  • Windows Firefox, Mozilla, Netscape and K-Meleon: press the Shift and Alt keys together, as well as one of the access keys (without using the numeric keypad);
  • Windows and Macintosh Opera: Esc + Shift and access key;
  • Macintosh Internet Explorer: Ctrl and access key, then Enter;
  • Macintosh Safari, Mozilla and Netscape: Ctrl and access key;
  • Linux FireFox: Alt and access key;
