Hi Dan

Below is the list of shortcuts for facebook. these include what ever browser you are using plus the face book ones.

It is probably alot easier to use the single letter ones by or I mean with NVDA. In some cases you will need to change from browse mode into say focus mode say to sign out.

Shortcuts that can be used with FaceBook




Facebook has shortcuts (access keys) for people who only use their keyboards to navigate. If you experience an issue using keyboard shortcuts, please let us know. Keep in mind that keyboard shortcuts can differ by browser (ex: Firefox, Internet Explorer).

Internet Explorer for PC: Alt + #, then Enter

Firefox for PC: Shift + Alt + #

I have been trying to use the facebook website.  I am totally confused about how to do things like posting things and making comments to friends' posts.  How do you do this with a screen reader and especially NVDA?

Are there shortcuts or something that I should be using?
