[access-uk] Re: Decent accessible RSS client?

Hi Vanja,
 
The treeview is awkward, I ended up labelling the checked and unchecked
graphics with Window-Eyes.
 
Yes, you can set the update time to 15, 30, 45 and 60 minute intervals.  I
then go down the treeview to the feed I want read the articles, and
control-w on the articles I want to read manually, and the text comes up in
an edit window.  So you don't have to use the Aloud bit at all.
 
All the best
 
Steve

Hi Steve. I have downloaded news allowed. I don't particularly care that it
speaks the articles as that's not really something I'm interested in.
Instant updates would be nice, but it's not essential if that's the only way
that client can do it.
 
A few things I'm unsure about hta client though. First, the treview with
different rss feeds that are already set as default is weird as it doesn't
seem to let you what is checked and what is not. I'm not interested in that,
I'm just interested in adding my own feeds and being able to either be
instantly updated when new articles are available or at least be able to
manually check when that's the case. Like I said before, IE is supposed to
notify when going through the list of feeds when new articles are available
by putting the word new next to the feed, but for whatever reason this is
not happening in a lot of my feeds. Sure I could check every feed to see if
there are new updates, but that sort of defeats the purpose.
 
I have noticed that you can add feeds to News allowed and I have added
several feeds. If I go to list of feeds I see that they are all there. I
assume that all these feeds that I added will be updated and if any
retrieved automatically? If that is the case, then this client could be
useful.

Hi Vanja,
 
NewsAloud from http://www.nextup.com.  If you want auto updates, it can
automatically read them aloud to you when they get updated.
 
All the best

Subject: [access-uk] Decent accessible RSS client?


I'm sure this has been mentioned thousands of times on here, but as always
when not really needed I haven't really paid much attention about the
information provided.
 
I'm more in to RSS feeds now. I know that IE7 has RSS capability, but there
are several things I don't like about it.
1. IE does not pop up notifications when new feeds are available
automatically, you have to manually go in to list of feeds and check if
there are new updates in feeds that you have subscribed to. I understand
there are clients who notify you as soon as a feed is updated?
2. I understand that IE is meant to indicate when going through list of
feeds if a particular feed is updated. Mine doesn't seem to do it. I know
for a fact that there was a new update to one of my feeds that I have
subscribed to that I haven't read yet, but IE didn't indicate that.
 
So in conclusion, is there a reasonably accessible RSS client that will
notify me as soon as a feed has updated? Also is there a way to export all
my current feeds that I have subscribed to in IE to another client and if so
how? Thanks in advance for your help.
