Hello and welcome to this video.

In this video I am going to quickly show you how to access Facebook using keyboard shortcuts and the screen reader NVDA.

I will presume that you have NVDA running and you are logged into Facebook.

These keyboard shortcuts work even if you are not using a screen reader.

Your Facebook account has lots of different sections in it and keyboard shortcuts give you access to most of these.

These shortcuts will give you access to the most important sections of your Facebook account.

Some of these shortcuts you will be using all of the time and some of them them you will never use.

Right, let’s jump right in.

Shift + Alt + 0 takes you to the Help page.

Shift + Alt +1 takes you to your Home page.

Shift + Alt + 2 takes you to your Timeline page.

Shift + Alt + 3 takes you to your Friends page.

Shift + Alt + 4 takes you to your Inbox

Shift + Alt + 5 takes you to your Notifications

Shift + Alt + 6 takes you to your Settings

Shift + Alt + 7 takes you to your Activity Log

Shift + Alt + 8 takes you to the About page

Shift + Alt + 9 takes you to the Terms page.
