Enable Accessibility mode in Sharepoint 2007

We were talking with Santiago about a project y he commented that the master page had a hidden section to enable a compatibility mod. The true is I not to know this then here I want to share this feature. In the section 1 we can see the code hidden in the master page.

[Section 1]

<span id="TurnOnAccessibility" style="display: none">
  <a href="#" class="ms-skip" onclick="SetIsAccessibilityFeatureEnabled(true);UpdateAccessibilityUI();return false;">
     <sharepoint:encodedliteral runat="server" text="<%$Resources:wss,master_turnonaccessibility%>" encodemethod="HtmlEncode" />

Well, how we can enabled the mode, first, is necessary to access our portal in Sharepoint. In Image 2 we can see the default page of our site.

The second step is moving using the key “tab” in our page and in the top of the page new link “Turn on more accessibility mode” is showed together breadcrumb. In Image 2 we can see the link.

We are going to press the link and to activate this compatibility. The message change and now we can see the following text “Turn off more accessible mode”. This message state there while the compatibility is activated. In Image 3 we can see the compatibility activated.

If we are going to the site actions and select it, a new popup is loaded with the options of the menu instead of classic menu. In Image 4 we can see the popup with the options.
