The following 3 Access Keys have been enabled mainly for use with Screen Readers and PDAs:
Access Key M - brings you to the start of the common menu bar (tab once to go to the French Language button, tab twice to go to the "Contact Us" button, etc.).
Access Key 1 - skips the common menu bar and brings you to the sub-navigation links (these links are more specific to the Web page you are on).
Access Key 2 - skips all menus and takes you directly to the content of the page.
Please note that how the Access Keys work differs between browsers, as well as which keys are used depends on the platform. For example, Internet Explorer uses "ALT" M - since "ALT" is a Microsoft standard for Access Keys, another platform may use a different key altogether.
