Navigating with the keyboard

This webpage entirely navigatable by only using your keyboard. The navigation is done by using the Tab key. With every press on the key, the focus is moved on to the next element. The currently active element is in a different colour and marked by a box around it. In order to activate the link in focus, you must press the Enter key on your keyboard.

Zooming

Zooming in function is present in most of the modern popular browsers and is accessible by holding down the CTRL key (Cmd key in the OS X operating systems) and pressing either the + or - key. Another way is to use your mouse and hold down CTRL and scrolling your scrolling wheel either up or down. Reseting your zoom back to normal is done by pressing CTRL and 0 at the same time.

In Windows 7 you can find a program called Magnifier by pressing the Start button, typing in Magnifier and pressing Enter. A little window where everything is zoomed in will open up. The program will follow your cursor by default.

In Windows XP you can find Magnifier by pressing Start > All Programs > Accessories > Accessibility > Magnifier

On Apple machines you can zoom in by going to Apple menu > System Preferences > Accessibility (or Universal Access) > Zoom
