Site general access keys
The SoundJunction website has access keys, which provide keyboard shortcuts and offer you an alternative way of navigating around the site.
To use them on a Windows PC, press (and hold) the 'Alt' key with the access key you want (the letters and numbers listed below) - then press the Enter key. For example, to go to the home page, press 'Alt' and 1 then press Enter.
If you are using a Macintosh computer, use the 'Ctrl' key instead: e.g. press (and hold) the 'Ctrl' key with the access key you want (listed below) then press the Enter key. The supported access keys on this website are as follows:
s - Skip navigation
1 - Home
2 - About SoundJunction
3 - Register
4 - Change colour settings and find accessibility information
5 - Switch between Browse mode and Journey mode
6 - Help
7 - Log in / log out
9 - Feedback
Using access keys in the interactive tools
You can also use access keys to operate the interactive tools on the site: the Explorer tool, the Composer tool and the Journey Mode tool.
Use the tab key to tab into the application and then use the tab key again to move around the different regions of functionality and navigation. Within each region you can use the arrow keys to select individual features and Enter to activate the feature.
Unfortunately there is no standard way to tab out of these applications. You may need to refresh the browser window to do this (Ctrl + R or Apple + R). Make sure you save any work before doing this.

You can use the following keyboard shortcuts in the Explorer and Composer tools:
Ctrl + z - undo
Ctrl + Shift + z - redo
Space - play/pause
, (comma) - rewind/jump to previous view
. (full stop) - fastforward/jump to next view
