A 1-pixel image works for screen reader users but it is no use for sighted
people who use keyboard navigation.

Steve
 
One way to do it is make a transparent gif of 1px x 1px. Then
embed that in your link with no text. Have an ALT or a TITLE with
'skip navigation'
 
<a href="#top" ><img title="Skip navigation" alt="Skip navigation"
src="/screens/dot/gif"  /></a>
 
regards

Mark

I always point people to http://blackwidows.co.uk/. The links are accessible
to screen readers and are displayed when they have focus so they are
accessible to sighted users who use keyboard navigation.

Can anyone point me to the best way of providing a 'skip nav' procedure
which is invisible to sighted readers but is picked up by screen readers?
It seems a can of worms - I've searched and read about it, but (of course)
it is impossible to find out which way is recommended by real world web
designers who have actually used a bullet-proof approach.
 
I'd be really grateful . . .
 
Thanks,
 
Bob
