A method shall be provided that permits users to skip repetitive navigation links.

Adding a Skipper

A skip to contents link needs to be provided on every page. The link should immediately move to the body of the page and bypass the common navigation making navigation more efficient for screen readers or keystroke navigation. If you are using the university template the skipper is already included. If not, the following code must be inserted right after the <BODY> tag:

<div><a href="/accessibility/#maincontent" id="skipper">Skip to the content</a></div>

This code will jump to the element the id "maincontent". It can be any element such as <P>, <SPAN>, <TABLE>, etc. The following code is an example of a <DIV> element.


When running a report, AccVerify will look for the words "skip to the content", "Skip", "Jump to main Content" or "Skip Navigation" thus it is important to use any of these phrases.
