Improving the accessibility of our website for all users is important to the City of Thunder Bay. Modifications can be made to your operating system and Internet browser to improve accessibility. The City offers the following online features
Menus are keyboard accessible by allowing users to use the tab key and arrow keys to navigate the menus. A mouse is not required to navigate the menus.
Press Shift + F12 to send focus to the first link in the main menu above (or press Tab as many times as need to focus some of the menu items). Then press Enter, Space or ↓ to activate some sub menu and then you can use the ← → ↑ ↓ arrow keys to move the focus to other menu items. The script will automatically show/hide the sub menus as needed. You can press Esc at any time to deactivate the sub menus.
