The Tab Index of a website is the order in which elements can be accessed by pressing the Tab key. The Hull Children's Trust website has been designed to ensure that the most frequently used parts of the website - for example the homepage - will feature early on in the tab sequence.
To access the Tab Index simply press the Tab key on the keyboard. Each subsequent press of the Tab key will then move the sequence along. You will be able to see which element in the Tab Index is selected as it will be surrounded by a dotted rectangle. To access that element, simply press return when it is surrounded by the dotted rectangle.
