Re: Facebook with NVDA
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Good morning to all,
I have been using NVDA and Facebook for a couple of years and without problem. I find the http://m.facebook.com page of Facebook more accessible and friendly to use. I have yet to run into a problem where I could not do with NVDA what someone could do with eyesight.

I tend to use Firefox on my Windows 10 PC and so I need to press the Shift and the Alt keys together but if you are using Chrome, you just use the Alt key.
Each of the main sections on Facebook can be accessed by pressing a number. For instance pressing 1 will take you to your newsfeed and pressing 4 will take you to your inbox.
These numbers need to be pressed with either the shift and alt key or just the alt key depending on your operating system and your browser.
Below I have listed the shortcuts needed to access the main sections within Facebook.
Shift + Alt + 0 takes you to the Help page.
Additionally, your newsfeed or timeline can also be accessed with different shortcut keys. These just require single letters to be pressed and are the same regardless of which operating system and browser you use. I have listed them below.
Pressing the forward slash (/) will enable you to search.
I hope these instructions are helpful.
These instructions are also contained within some videos that I have created. You can access the videos (each has a full text transcript.)
