Content Anchor and Access Key


    • We collect Confluence feedback from various sources, and we evaluate what we've collected when planning our product roadmap. To understand how this piece of feedback will be reviewed, see our Implementation of New Features Policy.

      It would help individuals with disabilities if there was an anchor at the top of the main content area on pages and blog posts.

      <a name="startcontent" id="startcontent" title="Start of Content">Start of Content</a>

      With related CSS to ensure it does not appear on-screen:


      {display:none; accesskey="1"}

      That css also provides the Alt+1 (for example) access key to quickly jump to the start of content. "1" is not a defined standard, but is widely used on many sites.

      Note: Some sites use "S" but that conflicts with the browsers built-in Alt+S link to the on-screen search box.

      Such a feature is useful for people using screen readers and braillers as it allows them to skip all the navigation, etc., and jump straight to the content they are interested in.
