Re: accessible facebook?



tried teletender, it is very convenient for day to day activities on facebook, like checking updates. seems lacking some functions, like managing friends.


Re: accessible facebook?



There was also The Friend Mail, which was a site that let you use Facebook via email. But it appears that the domain has expired. I don't know if or when it will be renewed, but the URL is http://www.thefriendmail.com . Never heard of Teletender before, will have to check it out. Another great option is The Socializer, but that's only available for paying Serotek customers I believe. They say on their website that the Socializer may be used with other screen readers too, but I haven't yet checked that out. There is also Social-Eyes from GW Micro, but I've not used it.


Re: accessible facebook?



I have been using teletender for facebook lately. it is a phone service, kinds of like the automated voice menus when you call a bank. It can read facebook updates to you on the phone, or you can post updates or comments using your own voice. I am using 518 688 0680 but they have some numbers in other area codes listed on their web site, http://teletender.org

Using NVDA, Facebook is somewhat accessible, but you'll probably have better luck using the Facebook Mobile page found at:
