Accessibility Extensions for Internet Explorer ®

Overview

IE Accessible adds features to Internet Explorer to make it easier for people to view and navigate web content based on the structural markup used to create the web page. IEAccessible can be used directly by everyone (including people with disabilities) to navigate the structure of a HTML web resource. It can be used by authors to check their structural markup to make sure it matches the actual content structure of the resource. IE Accessible supports users to use structural markup to view the main topics of a web resource (H1-H6), find collections of related links (MAP), find and use keyboard shortcuts (accesskeys) and navigate links.

  1. List of links (ALT-F12)
