PhilCeCNet.ph strives to provide access to all individuals including persons with disabilities. If you encounter any difficulty in using this site or if you have comments or suggestions on how to further improve the accessibility of this site, please do contact us.
• Access Keys
Access keys allow you navigate the PhilCeC Web Portal without using your mouse. They can be used to jump directly to different sections of the site or certain areas within a page.
The use of access keys is supported in most browsers. If you’re using Firefox, hold down the ALT and SHIFT keys then press the number or letter of the access key. On the other hand, if you’re using Internet Explorer, hold down the ALT key, press the number or letter of the access key, then press ENTER.
Normally, in other browsers, just pressing the ALT + access key combination already works. For Mac users though, you may use CTRL + access key.
The following are the access keys defined for this site and their corresponding functions (based on the Philippine Web Accessibility Group’s recommended access key assignments):
Access Keys and Functions
0 Go to the Accessibility Statement
1 Go to the Home page
2 Skip to main content of current page (for non-visual browsers)
5 Go to the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page
C Go to the Contact Us page
M Go to the Site Map
P Access the printer-friendly version of the article currently displayed
S Go to the Search textbox
D Access the Downloads section (Note: In IE, Alt+D is a browser function for selecting the text in the address bar.)
Please note, however, that some assistive technology tools already make use of the ALT + access key combination, so users of such tools may not be able to use the above access keys.
