Skip links

The links are not visible in a graphical browser but can be access as the first links in the tab order for each page.

ARIA keyboard navigation

All rich interactive elements on the Queensland Government website can be navigated using key combinations recommended by the Accessible Rich Internet Applications (ARIA) standard.

When using a browser that supports ARIA, you can:

  • use the tab key to enter an interactive element as part of the tab order for the page
  • use the arrow keys to move focus between the different controls for the interactive element; and
  • use the Enter key to activate a focussed control
  • use the tab key to move to the next set of controls or to leave the interactive element.

The following browsers are known to support ARIA:

  • Internet Explorer 8 and later

When using a browser that does not support ARIA all controls are still accessible as part of the normal tab order.
