That may be. I don't know what sorts of notices may be there.

No, but they have a "notification window", & that can be accessed using alt n.

Matt, this is not actually related to NVDA per se, but is rather
browser dependent. For example, Edge, Chromium, (& Lord forbid,
Internet Explorer) all use alt n. Firefox doesn't use a keystroke at
all--it just pops up--provided you have specified in its options to
ask what to do w/a particular file. If you haven't, then it likely
just saves to your download folder w/o providing you any recourse. Go

Re: Helping to make an Edge/Chrome RSS reader accessible

Cristóbal
 

Whenever this topic comes up, I always recommend The Old Reader
I first discovered it after Google Reader shut down and a lot of us became RSS refugees. It’s web based so you can log in from any device and browser. Completely accessible too. In fact, in my case, I have the “all posts” of the site with all my feeds set as my homepage. A bonus is that it’s compatible with iOS devices, so you can have synchronicity across multiple platforms.
There’s a free as well as paid options. I chose to pay for the extra features as well as to support the developers. It’s something like $2.00 a month, but it could be that I’m grandfathered in at that price since I’ve been subscribed for a while.
There are of course other options out there, but I prefer something web based so I don’t’ have to worry about not having things synchronize like pop3 or having a machine crash and take all my feeds with it or a funky add-on/extension etc.
Currently, I’ve got around 160 RSS feeds. You can create folders, rename feeds, search for feeds while on the site and all that good stuff.
Anyway, my two cents.

Cristóbal

Subject: [nvda] Helping to make an Edge/Chrome RSS reader accessible

Greetings,


If you are into RSS feeds and feed subscriptions, you most likely know that Windows suffers from a paucity of accessible RSS readers. Internet Explorer offers an accessible RSS reader, but accessing articles in IE is quite problematic these days given the age of the browser itself.
Thunderbird offers a good one, but it doesn't work the way a standard reader should operate in many ways. So I decided to see if I can find a good and stand-alone, I mean service/subscription-independent, RSS extension for MS Edge Chromium/Google Chrome as they have become quite popular. I tested a few readers but landed upon Smart RSS which, despite its accessibility shortcomings, sounds more promising:
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/smart-rss/eggggihfcaabljfpjiiaohloefmgejic?hl=en
<https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/smart-rss/eggggihfcaabljfpjiiaohloefmgejic?hl=en>

Fortunately the developer is quite responsive and really wants to help make Smart RSS more accessible on Github. So if you are interested, please visit the following page and chip in with your perspectives and
suggestions: https://github.com/SmartRSS/Smart-RSS/issues/132
<https://github.com/SmartRSS/Smart-RSS/issues/132>

Hope together we can find an accessible RSS solution for Windows 10/MS Edge Chromium/Google Chrome in order to get rid of Internet Explorer 11, once and for all!


Best,

Amir

Until recently (I am not sure when this started) when I would manually
run a Virus scan for Windows security, I could switch to the screen
review cursor and look at the dialogue including the progress and

Now if I use the read dialogue keystroke insert + B, after reading
through a bunch of superfluous items such as the tool bars and system
items, I do get the scan progress information read correctly.  This
means that it must be recognizable by NVDA at some level.

Has anyone else seen this issue?  If so, is there some way of rectifying
the situation?  If NVDA sees it in the read dialogue context, shouldn't
it be available in some form so that it can be read more easily?

Thanks for any help.

Perhaps it's a "me" thing. I find email responses much slower on the whole, which is why I tried to turn to skype groups a while back for more prompt assistance. I would personally prefer a more realtime interaction rather than waiting hours for a response that might not be entirely helpful.


I will admit, however, that many of you are not as young (twenty-nine) as me, nor do many of you have as much free time. And perhaps I'm just impatient when I want a problem solved and should work on that rather than demand an entire group change how they do things for my own convenience.

For me, it's far easier to write a well worded and detailed email, with considered steps to solve problems that people can refer back to and follow, than to have to get involved with an audio service where you have to be much more real-time.

Anyone is free to create anything they want for interaction about NVDA, but I wonder if getting the really experienced technical people to engage with it is likely.  Personally, I just don't have time for that kind of headache.
