JAWS 16 and FaceBook; the supposed useful keystrokes


Tusing <ptusing@...>
 

HI,

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

www.historychannel.com

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.

 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.

Hi,  Londa and all,

 

Using the

www.historychannel.com/facebook

 

or

www.historychannel.com

and then

press Enter

on Facebook:

is there  a faster way to get to the

edit field of

of History  Channel search editfield?

Or the editfield of any

Facebook page?

 

Is there some shortcut?

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,

Carolyn

Hi,
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
m.Facebook.com
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.

Mobile has not been working well for me lately with 17. I'll try later tonight to see if it is any better since I put in that reserve command.

Bye for now,

Carolyn
