Yes I did mean bloglines :).
Does anyone else use another stand alone rss aggrigator?  News Gator Outlook
Edition is good, but:
*there is a small cost to it; and
*you must have Outlook (note this is different than Outlook Express).

Hi Mika,
I believe you're actually referring to BlogLines at
http://www.bloglines.com.  I use that as my online RSS aggregator.

I know several people use Blogger with Jaws.
The key disadvantage I see in it is that you must be online to use it, it
does not download the text rss content to your computer.  So for instance,
you could not read the content on your laptop when not connected to the
internet with Blogger.
I have used News Gator Outlook Edition before.  This is a text RSS reader
that integrates with Microsoft Outlook and it essentially creates a folder
for each blog and under each folder you have your posts which look somewhat
similar to emails in Outlook.
There is also a program called Accessible RSS which will read text rss data,
but again you may need to be connected to the interenat at the time of
Note if you are going to be connected to the net, then Blogger might work
just fine for you.

Hi, I asked a question the other day on juice and some addresses that did
not produce episodes.  Well, one reply I got was that maybe I wasn't getting
any episodes due to that that address had no audio type of topics or such.
Okay, I will try to use another program that handles non-audible downloads
such as blogger or something.  Can someone suggest one that will work well
with Jaws?  I am sorry for being so ignorant but, I am learning.
