Breadcrumbs are the series of links at the top of each page that show you the path back to the NRC homepage. For example, you can see from the links at the top of this page that the page you are on, "Special Features," is under "Site Help," which is linked from the NRC homepage.
The links on the left side of each page show related pages at the same level as the current page and allow you to move "sideways" to related topics. For example, you can easily move to other "Site Help" topics by selecting the links on the left side of this page.
Explanation of Icons
ADAMS Library File
The ADAMS Library File icon is used as a graphical link to a document in the Agencywide Documents Access Management System (ADAMS).
ReadSpeaker Assistive Technology
ReadSpeaker is an assistive technology solution that allows you to instantly create an audio version of the website (text-to-speech). No download is needed. Simply click the ReadSpeaker link (top right on every web page) to read the entire page, or highlight desired text to be read, and click the ReadSpeaker button which will pop up on the page (pop-up blocker must be disabled). Once the ReadSpeaker player is opened, it is fully user configurable with several options to select. Select the "gear" icon for settings, or select one of the other icons for volume, or to download an MP3 file of your selected text.
The Back to the Top icon appears on pages to provide an easy way to get back to the top of the page. Select the icon to go up to the top.
The Exit icon is placed directly after an external link to let you know that the link is going to take you away from the NRC site. These links are provided as a service and do not imply any official endorsement of or responsibility for the opinions, ideas, data, or products presented at these locations or guarantee the validity of the information provided.
