EDINA policy includes making accurate accessibility statements, which describe shortcomings as well as positive features.
Most browsers support jumping to specific links by typing keys defined on the web site. On Windows, you can press ALT + an access key; on Macintosh, you can press Control + an access key (depending on which browser you use).
All the pages in this service define the access keys noted below:
Where applicable, pages in this service use structured semantic markup. H1 tags are used for main titles, H2 tags and lower for subtitles.
At the top of each page there is a Skip to main content link (access key 0) mapped to a blank space, in order to bypass navigation links for keyboard users. Every page has a global toolbar. This precedes the main content of the page, and includes the following links: "Basic Search", "Advanced Search", "Browse", "Results List", "Search History", "Marked Items", and "Help".
Links are written to make sense out of context.
When a link leads away from the web site, a new browser window will open. This should be noted in the title of the link.
Any content images used in this service include descriptive alt attributes. Purely decorative graphics include null alt attributes.
