Access keys function exactly like hot keys in any Microsoft application. They are intended as an accessibility aid for vision impaired users to skip directly to relevant content areas on a page. Internet Explorer (IE) has supported access keys since version 4, Netscape since version 6. Older browsers do not support access key functions, but this will not effect the visual delivery of content.
To use the access keys on the State Transit websites, Windows users can navigate with the access key feature by typing ALT+Access key followed by Return. Using a Mac, you will need to use CTRL+Access key (not COMMAND+Access key, which can produce undesirable effects).
Please type ALT (or CTRL for the Mac) +:
S = Skip to content
1 = Home
3 = Sitemap
4 = Search (either the input or link)
7 = Contact Us
9 = Feedback

The text is too small for me to read - how can I change it?
- In Internet Explorer go to View > Text size and select Larger or Largest.
- In Netscape go to View > Increase Font Size. You could also try changing the screen resolution.
- There is an in-page toolbar positioned on the same level as the 'page heading' that contains a tool to change text size.
