Hi, my name is Vikki Vaughan, and I'd like to welcome you to this introduction to Facebook. If you're ready to join the nearly three billion people who use Facebook each month, you're in the right place. In this first workshop, we'll explore our Facebook homepage. We'll also talk about the difference between our homepage and our profile page. Finally, we'll examine several ways to move around Facebook.
This series is designed for people who use a screen reader. If you're not a screen reader user, be sure to check out Hadley's low-vision version of this series.
Now, before we get started, you'll need to create your own Facebook account. You can find directions for creating your account in the resource section below this workshop. It will take you step by step through the setup process.
Ed: Now that you've had a chance to learn a bit with us, we'd like to learn more about you. Your name, email address, how you heard about Hadley, and your relationship to vision loss. Learning more will give us a better understanding of how to personalize Hadley just for you. And don't worry, everything you share with us online will be kept safe and secure. Of course, if you'd prefer to talk through these questions, we're just a phone call away at 800-323-4238.
Taking these few steps saves your preferences so you can continue right where you left off and track your progress every time you log on. Plus, it connects you to the Hadley community and helps sustain our funding to keep Hadley free of charge. And last but not least, it gives you direct access to experts like me. Now, where were we?
