Using access keys



The North Devon Council website features 'access keys'. These are shortcuts which allow you to get to certain parts of a web site quickly. They help you if you have difficulties using a mouse or prefer to use shortcuts.

On the North Devon Council website we have used the UK government access key standard on the most commonly used links and help features as listed below:

1 - home page
2 - what's new
3 - site map
4 - search
5 - FAQs
6 - Help
7 - complaints/contact us
8 - terms and conditions
9 - feedback
0 - accessibility help (this page)
