Access keys

Access keys are a navigation device which allow you to jump to different sections of the LSAC website with ease. Available access keys are:

  • h - Home
  • l - Learn To Dive
  • a - About LSAC
  • i - Information
  • f - FreeFlow
  • s - Sitemap
  • 1 to 9 - Submenu link of the current section
  • y - Accessibility
  • t - Terms and Conditions
  • p - Privacy Policy
  • c - Contact Us

For example if you wanted to go to "About LSAC" > "Rogues Gallery" you would need to use access keys A and then 4 (as the gallery is the 4th option of the about LSAC menu).
