Screen reader access
Screen readers are web accessibility software programs, often used by people with visual impairments to read web pages aloud. The EdComs teachers website contains several features to support their usage including Skip links and Access keys.
The first link on the page is a hidden link that allows screen reader users to skip directly to the main content of the page. There is another hidden link at the end of the content of every page that allows users to jump back to the navigation.
Access keys can be used as quick-links to key areas of the site by making use of a combination of keys:
|I||Terms and Conditions|
|J||Accessibility (this page)|
