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 has supported access keys since version 4, Firefox since version 2.0, and Netscape since version 6. Older web browsers do not support access key functions, but this will not affect the visual delivery of content.

To use the access keys on the NSW Police Force website, users can navigate with the access key feature by holding down a combination key (or keys) and simultaneously pressing the access key followed by Enter.

Depending on your web browser and operating system, the combination keys are:

  • Internet Explorer (4 and higher) or Netscape (6 and higher) on Windows: Alt
  • Firefox (2.0 or higher) on Windows: Alt + Shift
  • Internet Explorer (4 and higher) or Netscape (6 and higher) or Firefox (2.0 or higher) on Mac: Ctrl

The access keys for the NSW Police Force website are:
= Skip to content
1 = Home
4 = Site Search
7 = Site Map
9 = Feedback
and press Enter.
