Catherine, For reasons which I do not understand, Accessible RSS seems to have 
with certain feeds.  Even pasting the URL into the Add Feed dialogue sometimes 
a message implying incorrectly that the feed is not valid.   Also when it 
searches web pages 
it may fail to recognise the presence of some items.    I suspect that the 
program has not 
kept pace with the rapid development of RSS feed technology.   hopefully Webbie 
containing  the Accessible programs within the one installer, will have an 
improved version 
of Accessible RSS.  
Incidentally the Accessible RSs page of the webbie site says that some feeds 
may not work 
with it and gives a link to a Feed Validator.  

Sorry I canot be more helpful,
