I always recommend The Old Reader for RSS. It’s web based and fully accessible.

There are free as well as paid options. I choose to pay for the extra services as well as to support them. I’m grandfathered in at a $2.00 a month price for up to 500 feeds, but I think it may now be $2.50 or maybe $3.00 a month. I’m not sure.

The Old Reader can also sync with various mobile apps if you’ve got an Android or iOS device.

Have you ever tried using Thunderbird? That's what I use and it's quite good for me. Maybe you should give it a try as well.

Re: A couple of questions

Ashleigh Malone
 

Hi Quenyin,

Thanks so much for your reply.

As you suspected, restarting NVDA with add-ons disabled allowed me to interact with the settings dialogue and change settings. When I restarted NVDA with add-ons again, the changes I made in settings were honoured, which is exciting as I now have an NVDA key again. I will investigate the add-on updater add-on to see if I can isolate which of my add-ons is causing this but am happy with this workaround for now.

Kind regards,
Ashleigh

Hi Ashleigh,

I know we have many users who run NVDA on a Mac and use VMWare Fusion.  It's not something I'm really familiar with, so I will leave that question to those more adept with that setup.

For your second question, the settings screen certainly shouldn't be freezing like that.  I would be interested in a copy of your NVDA log to try and get to the bottom of it.

One thing to try is to restart NVDA with add-ons disabled.  Press NVDA+Q as if you were going to quit, then down arrow to "Restart with add-ons disabled" and press ENTER.  See if the settings screen behaves normally now.  If it does, you likely have an add-on that either needs updating to a newer version (there is an add-on updater add-on to help with this) or which is otherwise misbehaving.


Email to me at info@... (you can share to the list of you want, but if you do that, copy the contents into the body of the message, as you can't attach files when sending to the list).

Hi All,

A couple of questions.

I’ve recently changed my work set-up to allow me to work remotely. I am primarily a Mac user, however am happily using  NVDA with VMware Fusion. My questions relate mainly to setting up Capslock as an NVDA modifier key and making VMWare and windows generally work together. I have read extensively about this but am not having much joy. I feel sure this has been discussed extensively on this list and will do my own searching, but if anyone could post links to pertinent threads I’d be grateful.

My second issue is more confusing. I have a portable copy of NVDA that I have recently installed  natively on my windows machine. I am having a great deal of trouble changing the layout from desktop to laptop, or modifying any of the other settings eg. Level of punctuation etc. I can successfully change settings using keyboard commands, however whilst in the preferences dialogue both the apply and okay buttons just hang and my only option is to esc the settings dialogue completely. I find it odd that it will honour actions achieved using keyboard commands but not in the settings dialogue itself. Any assistance greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Ashleigh

JAWS doesn't let me know I'm in an edit field either.

I tried typing and I was able to change the name as in any

That's an example of looking around an not assuming what your

I tend to do that, but that one passed me by.

As far as finding a book mark after you save it even if you don't know
the name, if you know what folder it is saved in, it is the first
bookmark at the end of the list. If you are in the list and up arrow,
it will be the first one. I don't work enough with book marks in
Chrome to discuss specifying a folder much but I can tell you a little
if you want to know.
Can you specify a folder for a bookmark? I of course wouldn't want my IE bookmarks separated from the ones I make in Chrome, since their directory structures would be intentionally identical.

I can't answer the other questions about how to move all bookmarks to
one folder, etc. But creating bookmarks in Chrome is similar to doing
so in other browsers.
That's very good to know.

CTRL+SHIFT+O brings up the Chrome Bookmarks Manager and you can easily
change the current names assigned. Bringing up the context menu in
Bookmarks Manager when you're sitting on a bookmark gives Edit as the
first choice. You can set the name to anything you wish at creation
time right in the edit box presented and it's the first thing you land on.

That's all very good. But I want to edit the bookmark name before I save it, not afterward, since I won't be able to find my bookmark if I don't know what Chrome automatically named it.
Also, I'd like to move all my Internet Explorer favorites in Chrome from the Imported from IE directory to the root of wherever Chrome stores favorites. AI want all my favorites sorted into the directories I assigned them, not grouped by the browser from which they were imported.

Hello,

When we talk about IE and FF/Chrome, we should not forget IE's management of RSS feeds. as I know this is the best implementation of this feature so far.

Any advice or should I use IE for reading RSS feeds?

Re: Microsoft's Own Security Chief Says: STOP using Internet Explorer

When you start to make a bookmark, if you tab once from the name field, you get to a field where you can specify the folder the bookmark will be saved in.  I don't remember if it is identified as a combo box, but that is how it functions. 
Up and down arrow through the choices.  If you want to add the book mark to the Internet Explorer folder, stop on that folder.  Don't press enter because I'm not sure what that would do.  You can experiment and see if you wish.
If you shift tab back to the name field and press enter, the book mark will be saved in the specified folder. 
 
You may change the name of the bookmark whenever you want, before or after you specify the folder.

Starting a braillenote APEX WITH NDVA

Hi, everyone,

I can use my Apex with NVDA only if I have launched it with Jaws before I disable that one. How can I start my APEX directly when using NVDA? Does anyone know a way?

Thanks,

Re: Autocorrect question.

 

Thanks, but is there a certain string I can type into the replace box, like a macro, that would allow me to type other characters while it corrects the first character?
For example, in LO and OO, I can type,
"a.*
And, the second I hit the letter N, or any other letter, even though I didn't hit space or similar, LO and OO transform it to,
"A
without me having to type, period, asterisk. Is there a kind of macro or built in way to make MS word do this too?

Re: Starting a braillenote APEX WITH NDVA

 

Hi,
Depends on which connection you are using. If using USB, you need to install the USB serial driver from HumanWare, not the JAWS driver. If using Bluetooth, you need to pair and connect with the Apex while NVDA is running.
Cheers,
Joseph

why i love NVDA

molly the blind tech lover
 

Hey guys, Molly here.

In light of the recent arguments on this list, I feel the need to write something positive.

 

 

When I think about NVDA I like to think of how it has opened my eyes to a whole new world. Before I started using NVDA I was locked out of all kinds of opportunities. I couldn’t imagine being able to get a job or go to college.  I wanted to do something with my life. So when I got a computer and discovered NVDA my life changed for the better. Because NVDA I now have access to an education. I can make friends on facebook, and use twitter. I can read the news and do just about anything on a computer my sighted friends can do. NVDA opens so many doors for millions of people.I feel so proud to be an NVDA user  😊 I now see a future filled with wonderfulpossibilities.  

I can never express enough to the NVDA developers and contributors how much NVDA has enriched my life. 😂

Thank you guys so so much.

Programing question.

majno
 

Hello. I'm trying to start to program for NVDA. i'm new with codes for NVDA, but i know How to program using python. 
My question is:
I was testing how get spoken messages using the ui.message function, but the problem is when i try some code like this.

import ui

ui.message('hello, this is a basic test.')

Then i press intro key waiting for the message, but NVDA just try to speak and stop in less than one second leaving the message without finish.

But then i add a sleep(1) after and the message is finally read.

import ui
from time import sleep

ui.message('hello, this is a basic test.')
sleep(1)

Of Course, this is the bad way to do.
How can i get the message read without sleep NVDA?
I'm sure there is a way to, but i not familiar with NVDA parameters.E

Re: Clock

Hi NAJAF,

I don't understand your question.

The Clock add-on is compatible with NVDA from version 2014.3 up to the current alpha 16743.

It's even compatible with Python 3.

I invite you to read the last answer I sent to Yan and Ron.

As Yan confirmed that his problem is solved, I think this topic can be closed.

Thanks.

locked Re: NVDA and tablets

Josh Kennedy
 

I am using NVDA on an RCA cambio tablet with intel atom z8350 processor. 2gigs ram, 32gb solid state drive with 128gb micro sd card and windows 10 home 32bit. It works very very well. Best part is this tablet also has a physical keyboard. NVDA works very good with the touch screen. I had to change some of the keyboard commands because they did not work with this particular tablet's keyboard dock but once I did that it works just fine.
