Keyboard navigation

It is also possible to navigate this website only with the keyboard. Navigation is done with the Tab key. Each press moves the focus to the next item. The currently active item is indicated by a color change and a box around it. To activate the focus link, press the Enter key on your keyboard. You must use the Backspace key to go back using the keyboard.

The first three links, which become active when navigating in this way, are hidden from the common user and are designed specifically for keyboard navigators. These are "Skip to main content" and "Accessibility".

"Skip to main content" skips the header and left pane and jumps to the main content of the page. "Accessibility" refers to the same page you're currently on.

Using a screen reader

A screen reader is a program that tries to interpret what is displayed on a computer screen and convey it in other forms - for example, as sounds, as an audio commentary. In particular, it is a tool for the visually impaired.

For example, images have textual descriptions, below the video there is a description of what is happening in the video, the arrangement and order of the structural elements takes into account the movement of the screen reader on the screen and allows the information to be consumed in a logical order.
