If you are having trouble using Twitter you may want to try using easychirp.com, a web accessible alternative to Twitter's main website.
Facebook’s main site includes various accessibility options such as support for screen readers, zooming tools, alternative keyboards and WAI-ARIA landmarks. Some users find that the mobile version of Facebook works better with assistive technology: m.facebook.com. You can also use the Facebook Help Centre for further assistance: facebook.com/help.
For a guide to making internet access easier in general, we suggest you refer to the BBC 'My web My way' pages for help in adjusting your browser, computer, keyboard and mouse settings.
