Laura,

 

No offense intended, but your email sig, below your message is a *lot* of lines 
to have to listen through with Jaws while waiting to hear just the headers of 
the message to which you're responding. Please, nobody tell me to hit escape or 
delete when I see Laura's name in my Inbox. What if I don't hate her? Okay? So 
let's forget that old saw. Thank you, beloved but sometimes short-fused folks.

The problem with that version, however, is since it's the mobile version, most 
of the applications are not available in it. I'd rather use Twitter.

  I prefer the accessible Facebook site, which seems to work pretty well with 
JAWS. It is much easier to navigate than the regular Facebook site.

    Do you use it Laura? Does it work better for you than the regular, more 
graphical, site? I might have heard about it on this or another list, but at 
the time it filtered through that part of my brain that isn't being used unless 
it is really needed. <grin>

    Subject: Facebook accessibility - Did you know

    Hi all,

    Has anyone else tried the accessible version of Facebook's site. You can 
find it at: http://m.facebook.com 
    As more people have asked in training about Facebook I've been trying to 
come up with instructions and quick ways to get places and such. I decided to 
read their help center to see if they mentioned anything about screen readers 
and sure enough they did! I sent this link on to a former client yesterday who 
said she'd been struggling with Facebook for weeks. I had a note back from her 
already this morning saying that she was able to find everything she'd been 
looking for on the regular site using this accessible version. It would be 
interesting to hear other feedback on this.
