Accessibility Keys

If you have special needs, or, if you have difficulty in using a mouse or pointing device, you can use accessibility keys. The keys have been implemented throughout the site. These keys comply with UK Government guidelines and we have also implemented special Farnborough keys (see below).

These allow users to navigate around the site without a pointing device using only their keyboard.

A full list of the accessibility keys used on this site are as follows:
