One of the most effect ways to enable people with limited mobility to better access a website is to add access keys. The W3C introduced the
accesskey attribute to enable users to select the appropriate key on their keyboards and navigate to a particular link. It isn't hard to imagine how helpful that would be to someone using a screen reader, or for a user that has difficulty controlling a mouse and must tab through menus - a very slow process. Access keys can also be useful to people who don't have any trouble controlling the mouse and clicking on links. Just as keyboard short-cuts in desktop applications allow experienced users to save files, open new windows, or copy and paste text. Assigning access keys to menu items adds “Hot-Key” functions to a website, letting frequent users spend less time less time moving and clicking the mouse.
