Bypass Blocks: Users can "Skip To" important content by just using the keyboard. The "Skip To" menu appears when the user hits on "Tab".

When you hit the keyboard "Tab", a skip-to pin list appears on the top left side of the website. Hit "Enter" and then hit "Tab" to start navigating the pin list.

When you get to the pin you would like to read or comment on, hit "Enter". 


Once on the pin, hit "Tab" to navigate the pin elements.
