Re: Accessible Reader?


I just installed this add-on to Firefox, and it does absolutely nothing to make RSS feeds more accessible. The feeds(live bookmarks, as Mozilla calls them) are supposed to appear in a separate sidebar, but I could not find any hot keys or other means of accessing it. I assume the sidebar is displayed on the screen with all the live bookmarks, but that doesn't help someone who can't see it.

Hi Gerald, dear JFW-users!

As I have stated previously, Firefox is totally useless as an RSS aggregator
for blind users as long as it provides no audible notification when feeds
are encountered.

I am totally blind and I am well without an audible notification.

Neither FS nor Mozilla is apparently interested in
addressing this accessibility issue,

Because from my point of view it has not really a very high priority.
Have you ever talked with Marco about this issue?

and this add on is of little help.

Have you tried it out?
I am convinced that you don't have so far. :-(

So long,
Claudia
