Access Keys For Web Usability


I just added two access keys to the site:

ALT + s : Site Search
ALT + 1 : Home Page

I was just reading about access keys and web usability over here and these are the access keys that they recommend:

Alt + 1 : Home page
Alt + 3 : Site map
Alt + 4 : Search
Alt + 5 : Common Questions
Alt + 6 : Help
Alt + 9 : Feedback form

Of these, I only have the home page and the search. Furthermore, my search is NOT (4). ALT + s seems more natural to me; they both start with "s." But, seeing as I lack several of those, it makes me think that my site is lacking stuff. I mean, I know it is, after all, I am still building it. But, now, makes me think I need a site map at the very least.

Reader Comments

I believe in love. I believe in compassion. I believe in human rights. I believe that we can afford to give more of these gifts to the world around us because it costs us nothing to be decent and kind and understanding. And, I want you to know that when you land on this site, you are accepted for who you are, no matter how you identify, what truths you live, or whatever kind of goofy shit makes you feel alive! Rock on with your bad self!
