Re: JAWS 16 and FaceBook; the supposed useful keystrokes

At first the mobile site worked better for me, and now, neither are that great, but I'm more familiar with the regular site, as I didn't know about the mobile one until last summer.

Bye for now,

One thing I'd advise is to make sure you are on the regular facebook site. The keystrokes don't work on the mobile site. I forget which build of JAWS 16 started it, but it was a fairly early one. They seemed to work for me on that page. Even if you think you're not on the mobile site, check the address bar to be sure.

I set up

“reserve” (let the site activate the keystrokes for that page ” for FaceBook in

JAWS 16.

Either certain FaceBook pages do notsupport the

New uses for the

“j” or “shift j” or

Not all versions of JAWS 16 support the new FaceBook keystrokes.

There are 3 versions of JAWS 16.

Please which JAWS 16 version supports the special key commands developed for use with FACEBOOK?

Do the special JAWS/Facebook keystrokes work for you on <>

and then

pick Facebook.

Yes I have written to FaceBook list.

But this post discusses whether or when the

JAWS/Facebook key commands actually work.

Perhaps there are FaceBook pages wherethe key commandsdo notwork.

Have you found a FaceBook page where they Work?!

If so, which page. So one can test keystrokes on that lucky FaceBook page.

Many thanks.
