The SOSSI website uses keyboard shortcuts for quick keyboard access to a link or form control without needing to use the mouse or tab repeatedly. This speeds up the user's interaction with the page. This standard is consistent with recommendations of the W3C Techniques for Web Content Accessibility Guidelines and the Center for Applied Special Technology.
We use the below hot key XHTML coding to set standard keyboard shortcut properties into our web pages. The number button (or key) refers to the keys in a row above the alphabetic keys, not the number pad keys.
