Accessibility

frog is committed to website accessibility. This page explains how to use some of the accessibility features of frogblog.

Access Keys

This site can be used without a mouse. There are shortcut keys that will take you to commonly used pages such as the homepage and contact us page. Where possible we have attempted to use standard access keys for each link, following conventions set by other sites.

To use these shortcut keys hold down the ALT key (PC) or CONTROL key (Mac) and then one of the keys in the table below. In some browsers you may have to press enter to confirm your choice.

Text Alternatives

Most content on the site is published in plain text. Any PDFs or Office documents, usually have a plain text alternative. All images on the site have appropriate ALT text.

The only content for which frog is unable to provide an accessible alternative is the Audioblog MP interviews – sorry, but we don’t have the time to create transcripts of these, unless someone volunteers, in which case email frog.

If you find any content on frog blog that doesn’t have an easily available, appropriate text alternative, then please email webmaster@greens.org.nz.
