Subject: [ITACCESS] New SkipTo Browser Extension provides keyboard navigation to Landmarks and Headings (developed at the University of Illinois)

The "Skip to Landmarks and Headings" browser extension supports the Bypass Blocks requirement of WCAG by providing keyboard support for viewing and navigating to selected landmarks and headings on any web page. It also provides everyone with a high level outline of the landmarks and headings of a page to quickly scan the content of a web page, including users of screen readers. The SkipTo extension was developed at the University of Illinois as part of the activities of the DRES Accessible IT Group<https://accessibleit.disability.illinois.edu/>.
