Re: JAWS 16 and FaceBook; the supposed useful keystrokes

David Moore

Even with JAWS 16.0.1214, using the regular Facebook site is so inconsistent with those special FB commands. I always use the Mobile site of FB, which you can easily get to on a computer. The mobile site has links for just what you need and no other stuff to get through. Just type in
No www. Use IE11 or Google Chrome and not Firefox. The mobile site is so easy to navigate that you do not need those special key strokes. In fact, those key strokes will not even work on the Mobile site, because it is so easy to use already. Take care, and let me know how it goes on the mobile site. Have a great one.

Subject: JAWS 16 and FaceBook; the supposed useful keystrokes


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.
