Explanation of this document

The three most common operating systems are Windows, Mac OS and Linux. Where it says ”Ctrl/CMD” below means the key Ctrl-key in Windows and Linux while in Mac OS X it means the key with the text “cmd” or an image of an apple on it.

Availability and hints

General availability adaptation

Nordic Law aims to make the content of the website available and usable for as many people as possible, regardless of pre-requisites. You can use ordinary aids, e.g. Screen magnifier and screen reader while you use the website.

Change the font size

If you think the text on the website looks too small or too large, you can simply change it by using the built-in functionality in your web browser. In most modern web browsers you do this by holding down Ctrl/CMD and scroll with the mouse wheel. Otherwise you will find alternatives to change the font size in your browser's settings.

To print pages

You print pages on the website by using your browser's built-in printing functionality. In most modern web browsers you do this by holding down Ctrl/CMD and press P.

New windows

Generally no links are opened in new windows. There are exceptions for certain document formats, e.g. PDF.

If you want to open a link in a new window or a new tab you can right click the link and choose Open in new window or Open in new tab. In most modern web browsers you can hold down Ctrl/CMD and click the link to open it in a new window or a new tab.

Keyboard navigation

If you find it difficult to use the mouse it is often simpler to navigate with the keyboard. In most modern web browsers you can do this by using Tab to jump to the next link, and Enter to activate (”click”) the link. To jump back to the previous link you hold down Shift and press Tab.

Short cuts

If you navigate through the keyboard, use a cell phone or a screen reader it can be troublesome to “tab” past a lot of links before you get to the main content of the page. There are two links in the beginning of each page which make it possible to jump past menus etc., directly to the main or the secondary content.

System requirements and recommendations


To see the entire www.nordiclaw.se in full scale we recommend a resolution of at least 1024 x 768 pixels. Most modern screens will support this. The website will still work, even if your screen does not fulfill this recommendation.

  • Safari 3.0 and higher
  • Opera 9.0 and higher
  • Google Chrome

Older and other web browsers

If your web browser is not in the list above, there are still good chances that everything works fine. Typical characteristics for older web browsers are that some elements look strange but still work in a normal way. One of the older web browsers is Internet Explorer 6, which unfortunately is still rather common, despite that it's easy to replace and/or upgrade. If you have an old web browser we strongly recommend that you download and install Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, Apple Safari or a newer version of Internet Explorer.
