Accessibility

Accessibility is something wanted to focus on within the Alsager Town Council website. We hope this website attracts all members of our local town, so for those that are visually impaired can still enjoy this information.

Access Keys

The access keys are there to enable you to access the websites navigation using your keyboard instead of the mouse. This website has been developed for Internet Explorer 5.5 and above and on a PC Format. The access keys can be used by pressing the "Alt" and the corresponding number/letter simultaneously and then pressing the "enter" key. 

Please note that if you are using a Mac, you will need to press the "Ctrl" and the corresponding number/letter key to access the required area. If you are using Internet Explorer 5 or below then you will need to press the "Alt" key and the corresponding number/letter only.
