Re: third party rss readers

I tried this reader and found that it would not get the latest articles. I added my feeds (via import) and for one particular feed that I double checked it only showed one article from Nov. 19 (it was Nov. 22). I went to the feed manually in firefox and it showed that there were ten new articles for Nov. 22 (not counting the other days between Nov. 19 and Nov. 22).
I will not be using this reader because it is not accurate.

I am not sure what the issue is as you describe it but I may just not understand.
As I say when I open RSS Newsreader I cursor down to the feed I want to look at. I then hit Control R, this then automatically opens up a list of updated articles arranged chronologically with the newest article at the top of the list. My experience is that there is no delay in opening the feed using this method. The number of articles displayed appeared to vary according to the feed properties. Sometimes the latest 10 are shown whilst with other feeds more articles are loaded.
The Player does not automatically refresh but then as you in effect manually refress every time you look at a feed this does not in practice matter at all.
By the way the address for the webbie suite is, I am fairly sure

In an ideal world for me, the feed would simply show me all new articles in chronological order, rather than my having to check each feed individually. When last I tried the accessible rss client, I couldn't do this.

Okay, I remember you gave information on this Webbie suite but I can’t find it at the moment. I have been looking for a good replacement for both (one to do both or one for each) text/article feeds and podcasts. My paid for Qfeed just crashed yesterday and I can’t get it back.
Also, I am currently using gpodder for my audio and video podcasts but it is not accessible with NVDA so I have to use it with vision.
My main concerns for rss aggregators is that I can hide individual episodes that have been read/played and only show new episodes/articles.
Personally I am very happy with the RSS Reader Program provided free along with the other Webbie Accessible Suite of Programs.
There has been a recent slight tsimplification of the program to improve stability where I understand automatic Feed Refresh after the program has been loaded has been removed.
I do not personally find this a problem as all I do is cursor down my list of available feeds. I then hit control R which not only refreshes the feed rapidly but also open up the table of available articles in the feed automatically. then I just press enter on the Feed article and it will load in your browser.
Press escape in the article list and you will go back to the feed list.
Very simple but it works great.
I paid for the QFeed program from Accessible Apps but to be honest this Free program is far far more stable and fast at loading. RSS Reader has never crashed on me whilst this was a frequent problem with QFeed. Also the support from Alasdair King is good whilst the support on problems with the paid for QFeed is non-existent.

Has anyone found a desktop rss reader that works well with NVDA? I'm currently using goread.io, which is a distinctly dissatisfactory service.
