Access keys

The research portal supports the usage of access keys for an easy access to special parts of the page. To use these access keys a special key combination is used, which is depending on the browser used:

  • Internet Explorer: Use the ALT key followed by the access key to focus on the target element. Press ENTER to activate or click the target element.
  • Chrome: Use the ALT key followed by the access key to focus on the target element. If the target element can be activated or clicked this will be done automatically.
  • Firefox: Use the ALTSHIFT key followed by the access key to focus on the target element. If the target element can be activated or clicked this will be done automatically.
  • For other browsers please refer to the manual of this browser to find how access keys can be used.

The following access keys can be used in the research portal (for simplification only the format for Internet Explorer and Chrome is shown, modified the key sequence as needed):

  • ALT0: Opens the startpage.
  • ALT1: Jumps to the navigation.
  • ALT2: Jumps to the content section.
  • ALT3: Jumps to the header.
  • ALT5: Jumps to the search.
