I strongly suggest that you not use the accesskey attribute; it can cause significant accessibility barriers on a web site for most users. As well-intentioned as the accesskey attribute was, in practical use users of screen readers are dependent on a large volume of quick key shortcuts, and using an accesskey will usually break one of those shortcuts.
Hello. Thanks for that. I am blind myself so my initial intention was to make it easier for users who use a screen reader to navigate my site. I’ve read the article and yes, they have a point. So I think I have to drop the idea about the accesskey for the home link.
