> "We're Facebook friends, but we've never met in person!"
> It seems like everyone these days is spending at least some of their
> time on social networking sites. If you're not participating, you may
> feel left out - and it doesn't help that none of these sites were
> designed with blind users in mind! But what exactly do Facebook, Twitter
> and LinkedIn have to offer? How do you get started on them? And what
> about issues of privacy?
> This book is designed to help you learn about these three social
> networking sites so that you can decide which, if any, you wish to join.
> Anna Dresner gives you enough information to get started; she describes
> how these sites work right now and gives you some idea about the sorts
> of things you can do on them. Anna offers commands and strategies for
> navigating these sites with screen readers, and includes pointers for
> handling specific situations using JAWS, Window-Eyes and System Access,
> and VoiceOver on the Mac.
> Note: The DAISY version of this book will work with any version of
> FSReader, which comes free with every installation of JAWS.
