Access Keys

We have provided a series of keyboard shortcuts intended to help users who have difficulty in using pointing devices such as a mouse.

The standard UK Government access keys have been partially implemented on this site and are:

  • U - Top of Page
  • 1 - Home Page
  • 0 - Accessibility

The following additional access keys can also be used on this site:

  • 2 - All Careers
  • 3 - About Gentoo
  • 4 - Our People
  • 5 - Rewards
  • 6 - Training
  • 7 - Privacy Policy
  • 8 - Community
  • 9 - Contact Us

To further help remember these keys, please note that links that can be activated by access keys will indicate this by having the key listed in brackets as part of the link or image description.

Access keys are supported by Internet Explorer Version 4 or above and by netscape Version 6 or above. Older browsers do not support access keys and will just ignore them.
