Tab Index

It is also possible to use the 'tab' key (together with 'enter') to navigate this site. The Merseyside Network for Change site has a logical tab order through links, etc. This takes users through 'Skip Navigation' (allowing users to jump straight to the content of the page), followed by links to all the main sections. This is followed by links to the Accessibility, Legal and Privacy Statements, a link back to the home page, and then the second tier navigation. The tab order then takes users through any links in the content on the page, and finally to an email contact for the webmaster.
