Access Keys

Access keys function exactly like hot keys in any Microsoft application. They are intended as an accessibility aid for vision impaired users to skip directly to relevant content areas on a page. Internet Explorer (IE) has supported access keys since version 4, Netscape since version 6. Older browsers do not support accesskey functions, but this will not effect the visual delivery of content. 

To use the access keys on the OLG Website, Windows users can navigate with the access key feature by typing ALT+Access key followed by Return. Using a Mac, you will need to use CTRL+Access key (not COMMAND+Access key, which can produce undesirable effects). 

Please press ALT (or CTRL for the Mac) +: 

S = Skip to content 
D = About Local Government in NSW 
1 = Home 
4 = Search (either the input or link) 
7 = Council Search 
8 = Suburb Search 
9 = Feedback 

and press [Enter]
