I read the comments here and…

While I too use m.facebook.com because it’s not much of an obnoxious setup, it is a somewhat buggy and very stripped down way of accessing facebook. There are just some things that you either can’t do or that are very inconvenient.

If you have a list of stuff, for instance, like your friends, you’ll have to keep hitting ‘see more” over and over again just to see a few more entries appear. It is very annoying if say you have hundreds of friends and you want to go through them all to perhaps take out the trash, if you know what I mean.

 

Anyway, I can’t tell from these messages what it is exactly you want to do? What things are giving you the most issues/frustrating you the most, that yout hink you should be able to do or have seen others do? Maybe that’s a good starting point.

 

As for docs, I’m not sure there really are any except the help available from facebook itself.  Look for “help centre”; it should be near the bottom of just about every m.facebook.com page. Alt-shift-0 is supposed to be a quick way of getting there and indeed it works for me, but it might not for you depending on your setup – I personally like these kind of web-page specific hotkeys sometimes but not everyone does and obviously mobile browsers and such don’t support them, so some developers consider them a “bad accessibility crutch”.

I can agree with this.

I too have a huge time getting around out on face book via both JAWS and or NVDA.

Even though my brother who’s also a jaws user, has a better time out on face book than I do.

I’ve been thinking of pulling my face book account down, since I don’t use it all that much.

But, if I can get some advice from a fellow JAWS user to make it more accessible, than I’ll probably use it more often.

Just my two cents on this topic.

Hello,

 

I’m using windows 10 and Jaws 2020 most recent versions. I have been looking for Facebook documentation. Does anyone know of any thing will help? I’m always having problems finding the list of my friends. Or viewing a comment someone makes  which I get through an email.

 

Thanks,

 

Kevin
