"...Making Facebook Accessible for Everyone.

Among the features highlighted on that page are:

  • Audio alternatives to CAPTCHA, which is the technology you see on some websites that requires you to enter letters from a distorted display that a human can decipher but a computer script or automation cannot.
  • Straight HTML version of the site (specifically, the mobile version) that is friendlier to screen readers.
  • Non-Javascript version of Facebook Gift Shop, which addresses a standing frustration with the inaccessibility of that locale
  • Ability to use Facebook Chat via screen reader.
  • Shortcut keys to key sections of the Facebook, listed out by browser"
