Within the site as a whole, the first section of text is a series of hidden links that allow a user of the text reader to go directly to the contents of the page or to access the main menus...
You can thus go to the content when browsing the section,  the search engine or consult the news site directly.


The UPMC logo at the top of the page allows you to return to the site’s homepage.


The main menu allows you to explore the contents of the current section as well as the associated sub-sections.


A navigation menu is systematically placed at the bottom of the page and can be used to directly access sections on the same level other than the section currently being consulted.


The internal search engine is systematically placed at the top of the page on the right.
The search engine is internal to the site. The results of the search engine correspond to a ‘text only’ extraction of the pages that match your request the most.

When you enter a word in the search field, suggestions appear after a minimum of three letters have been entered. You can then select one of these by using the up and down arrow keys  and then pressing the ‘Enter’ key or your left mouse button.

The number of results is indicated for you on the results page. If your search generates many results, these will be displayed on more than one page and a means of navigating between the pages of results will appear. This navigation between pages is sequenced in groups of 10 pages. Use this to know which page you are on.

For increased legibility, the background colour between each result alternates.
