I Still use Miniflux and it is quite quite nice.

I host it on my own server for my personal use and use it quite heavily.

Thus the reason why I gave up on subscribing to newsletters in my inbox
long ago and use https://kill-the-newsletter.com to turn them into
feeds. Also being able to use quick navigation is much more efficient,
and I use Thunderbird for my regular email. therefore, I wouldn't
recommend using email as an RSs reader anytime soon..

   Sure you can use the web client, but over time, you're going to end
up with lots of emails if you don't keep up with it. To me that's what
an RSS reader is for. I may not want 359000 emails, but that's how many
unread items I have in my feed reader. part of the purpose of an RSS
reader is an archive, so that really doesn't bother me much.

It's pretty much not worth it for someone who has over 500 feeds like
me. I use the hosted version of Miniflux, https://reader.miniflux.app.

I used to use the Old Reader, and it doesn't have filtering features
that I'm aware of. You can do this with individual feeds with siftrss.com.

Hi,
thanks for your quick answer. Considering the problems stopped after I updated the driver addon. I'm pretty sure the driver was the reason for them, even if you don't think so. :-)
Now everything works fine once more.

Re: VPN services accessible with NVDA using Google Chrome or Firefox under Windows 10

I subscribed to Express VPN for a year when I knew I'd be using a university wifi during the 2018/19 academic year. I found it bvarely useable with NVDA ... none of its buttons were labeled. I did figure out which button activated the VPN but in the end I gave up! If I recall, object navigation was necessary even to find the buttons.

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

 

I agree.

I get many sources of news from many sources.

As it is I have restricted all news sources to official radio government stations, news sites and online twitter feeds.

I can just about get what I need.

But I spend a lot of time at least an hour or more a day on this stuff.

Tomorrow is sunday and I am seriously thinking after a bit I will try to get a break.

That's true -- they can be filtered to appear in a new mail folder. But that doesn't take care of the second problem: they are delivered together despite having being marked with feed title and feed source.

Hi!


The latest one is at:

https://www.tiflotecnia.net/Instal/vocalizer_expressive_driver-3.1.2.nvda-addon


But, your problem do not appear to be caused by our driver...

Can you specify better your problem with the Mozilla apps?


Best regards,

Hi
I finally updated my nvda. While "Vocalizer" works in general Nvda freezes completely in firefox as well as Thunderbird. I got the link to the driver from a message in this list from Febrauary. So I'm hoping there's a newer version where things work once more fine.

No of course.

My ifttt rss feed are marked with feed title and feed source.

Gmail will automatically bypass these email and put them under specific folder.

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

Awesome! I can't use the "river of news" format for a wide range of reasons either. Being able to utilize the "feeds list format" is an absolute must, but it is something that apparently only Internet Explorer provides on Windows. Maybe Thunderbird might also be able to do it, but it fails to detect my tree view of feeds and puts all NPR and BBC articles under one single branch without realizing that they belong to separate feeds.

Best,
Amir

does the oldreader has option to auto filter out post that contain certain keyword in its title?

Cristóbal 於 10/8/2020 2:32 寫道:

So, now I had to look it up. It looks like I was indeed grandfathered in at the $2 a month.

What will you get with The Old Reader Premium?
- Full-text search
- Faster feed refresh times
- Up to 500 Subscriptions
- 6 months of post storage
- Instapaper and Readability integration
- Early access to new features

What will it cost?
The Old Reader Premium will cost $3/month or $30/year. However, for the next 2 weeks (or up to 5,000 accounts) we’ll be offering the service for $2/month or $20/year and we will lock you into that price for a minimum of the next 2 years. This is our way of saying thanks to our existing users and hopefully getting the Premium service off to a great start.

This post was back in 2014 so I guess I’ve been saving that extra buck for the past four years or so… Yea me.

Again though, you don’t have to pay.

Do I have to upgrade?
No! 90% of our users can continue on for free just as they are today. However, users with more than 100 feeds will need to upgrade to premium. Otherwise, all functionality will remain available to free accounts. We also offer a 2 week trial period for the premium service and will even allow that trial period to get extended for those still interested in moving to Premium.

https://blog.theoldreader.com/post/76417559063/the-old-reader-premium

I’m sure there are other services out there that offer similar features with paid and free tears, so it’s not like these guys have some sort of special sauce or anything. This is simply the service I’ve found to cover most of my needs. I am a heavy RSS user with multiple devices that I may use throughout the day to keep up on the news.

The Old Reader’s even got keyboard commands similar to how Twitter.com and Reddit.com an a lot of other web based programs have. I don’t particularly make use of them, but they’re there if that’s your thing as well.

I feel I shouldn't have to pay $2 or more per month for a service

Is this for the premium service, or basic?   I'll admit the website isn't good about discussing this, but when I attempt the "Sign Up" process it mentions a 14-day trial of premium.  On a lot of these "premium versus basic" situations the cost is only if you want the premium features.

That would be good info to have.

I use ifttt plus gmail, in that way you will not be restricted to either particular rss client

Amir 於 8/8/2020 15:00 寫道:

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

Wow, no kidding, I haven't had any luck using Inoreader ever!! Not only
that but the limits are ridiculous.


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

So what happens if you have several feeds from one single website. Is
it possible to place all website-specific feeds under a single branch
or tree view? Or will all articles belonging to all feeds be presented
together? If the latter, it'll make handling feeds and articles quite
cumbersome.
    This is called the river of news format. It's the way most modern
RSS readers do things unfortunately. In fact, it makes your RSS reader
look more like Twitter, than an RSs reader.

    I tend to call the better way, the feeds list format." As in
there's a list of feeds, and articles from a particular feed are
displayed when you click on a feed from that list. OK OK, so that's the
more old-fashioned way of doing things, but it works well.
