This is the official accessibility statement for the The Buzz (book) web site. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact us.
Most browsers support jumping to specific links by typing keys defined on the web site. On Windows, you can press ALT + an access key; on Macintosh, you can press Control + an access key (depending on which browser you use). In some browsers, you may need to press ENTER to confirm your choice.
All The Buzz (book) pages on this site define the access keys noted below. NOTE: Some project pages that do not have the standard set of links or follow the standard Wastechnique page layout may not support the full set of accesskeys. This also applies to online user support guides that do not use the standard The Buzz (book) layout. Also, individual service interfaces may not use accesskeys, or may use a different set of keys, though we will be trying to standardise the keys used.
