"The power of the Web is in its universality. Access by everyone regardless of disability is an essential aspect."
-- Tim Berners-Lee, W3C Director and inventor of the World Wide Web
Creating an "accessible" site means creating a site that anyone can access and understand, regardless of technologies employed or any physical disability.
More information can be found at the W3C Web Accessibility Initiative Web Site
This site meets the guidelines set by the W3C to achieve this goal.

Access keys are used by pressing alt + the access key to highlight the link, and then return or enter to activate the link. Some links such as skip to content may be hidden and are not seen when highlighted, however clicking return will activate the link nonetheless.
