On every page, a single click on the Jaeger‑LeCoultre logo leads back to the home page of the www.jaeger-lecoultre.com website.
The main menu is a mouse-over menu which can be controlled by the mouse, the keyboard or with the fingers on a touch screen. The main menu in the left hand column, or on the top (homepage), lets you access the headings and main pages of the www.jaeger-lecoultre.com website.
As well as the aids made available directly on the www.jaeger-lecoultre.com website, the site has been designed so as to allow your browser to make the most of its own functionalities.
It is not always easy to read text on the screen. A default size is defined for each text on the www.jaeger-lecoultre.com website, but you have the possibility of increasing the size of the characters.
The www.jaeger-lecoultre.com website is currently redesigned so as to all keyboard navigation on all pages. In most cases, the Tab key is all you need to sequence through the clickable elements in the page. And if you want to work backwards through the sequence you can use the key combination Shift + Tab.
Keyboard users can print any page of the site by going to the desired page and then pressing Ctrl + P on Windows (or Cmd + P if you use Mac OS).

The www.jaeger-lecoultre.com website offers a certain number of videos. A special effort has been made to make these videos accessible to as many people as possible.
Each video is accompanied by synchronized sub-titles. These subtitles can be freely activated or disabled with a button placed directly in the video player.
The subtitles allow deaf and hard of hearing, or people who cannot hear the sound (because of lack of speakers or a noisy environment, etc.) to access the sound information on the video all the same.
In addition, they are often useful for persons whose mother tongue is not one of the available languages, who will be very pleased to have the sound and a textual accompaniment for better understanding.
