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

Amir
 

I've been using Miniflux Trial over the past few hours. While I appreciate its simplicity and accessibility, so far my major gripes with it are:
1. Navigating among articles is very difficult. Since Miniflux doesn't use headings or regions to display each article link or separate them from adjacent article links, one has to use the Up/Down arrows to reach each article link on the feed page and move past extra links or buttons. For instance, navigation around the links/articles for the following feed is quite cumbersome: http://feeds.feedburner.com/AndroidPolice
2. It doesn't display article summaries on the feed page. So one should select each article link to move to a new page in order to see the short summary. And opening the full article requires yet another link selection. Maybe worse, Miniflux doesn't display article summaries for some feeds at all -- check this one, for instance: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/wires/index.rss
3. Wish Miniflux had a "Refresh all feed" option. Refreshing each feed manually takes a lot of time, and the "Refresh feeds in the background" link apparently doesn't refresh them at the moment of selecting it.

The annual $15 fee sounds awesome if these issues are sorted out.

Best,
Amir

Zoom Accessibility enhancements add-on for NVDA
By: Mohamad Suliman and Eilana Benish

This add-on will improve the experience of using Zoom for NVDA users by providing keyboard shortcuts to Handle alerts for Different events While In a meeting, make the process of remote control much more accessible and smoother, and more...

keyboard shortcuts for controlling alerts In meetings
NVDA + Shift + A: cycles between different modes of reporting alerts. The following modes are available:
Report all alerts mode, where all alerts are reported as usual
Beep for alerts, where NVDA will play a short beep for every alert displayed in Zoom
Silence all alerts, where NVDA will ignore all alerts
Custom mode, Where the user can customize which alerts they want to have and which not. This can be done using the settings dialog of the add-on, or by using the dedicated keyboard shortcuts for that
The following shortcuts can be used to toggle on / off the announcements of each type of alert (note that this will be effective when custom mode is selected):

NVDA + Ctrl + 1: Participant Has Joined/Left Meeting (Host Only)
NVDA + Ctrl + 2: Participant Has Joined/Left Waiting Room (Host Only)
NVDA + Ctrl + 3: Audio Muted by Host
NVDA + Ctrl + 4: Video Stopped by Host
NVDA + Ctrl + 5: Screen Sharing Started/Stopped by a Participant
NVDA + Ctrl + 6: Recording Permission Granted/Revoked
NVDA + Ctrl + 7: Public In-meeting Chat Received
NVDA + Ctrl + 8: Private In-meeting Chat Received
NVDA + Ctrl + 9: In-meeting File Upload Completed
NVDA + Ctrl + 0: Host Privilege Granted/Revoked
NVDA + Shift + Ctrl + 1: Participant Has Raised/Lowered Hand (Host Only)
NVDA + Shift + Ctrl + 2: Remote Control Permission Granted/Revoked
NVDA + Shift + Ctrl + 3: IM chat message received
Note that you need to leave reporting all alert types selected (in Zoom accessibility settings) to have the add-on function as expected.

Keyboard shortcut for Opening add on Dialogue
NVDA + Z Opens the add-on dialog !

Using this dialog you can :

See which alerts are announced and which aren't
Select the types of the alerts you want to be announced
Choose alerts reporting mode
Save custom changes
Remote control
after a remote control permission is granted, NVDA + O will move the focus in /Out of the remote controlled screen

Note that the focus should be on one of the meeting controls to be able to remote control the other screen

Yes, I have set the refresh frequency to my server hosted miniflux to 5 minutes. If you want, then I can create an account for you.

You don't have to use the expressVPN control panel, you can actually use open VPN.

There are some instructions on how to do this on the express VPN website after you log in.

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.

I'm not sure about other VPNS you've mentioned, but the one I'm using right now is a VPN based New York, called VPN unlimited. Their app is usable, if you downloaded it from the Microsoft's store.

Hope that helps.

Hello everyone,
I'm curious to learn which VPN services you have found accessible using NVDA and Google Chrome or Firefox. Three VPN services which have been recomended by sighted users are ExpressVPN, CyberGhost, and NordVPN. Do any of you who actually use NVDA have experience with the accessibility of these particular services. Of course any other VPN services that you have tried that are accessible or unaccessible would also be appreciated. Thanks in advance for your assistance.

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

You can decrease this period by manually refreshing, of course if you
follow lots of feeds, that's a bit unwieldy at times.


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

Hope Williamson
 

It refreshes every hour. However you can manually refresh feeds. no real
reason to avoid using an online service. If you really wanted to, you
could install and use Thunderbird, I suppose. No I haven't tried that so
I wouldn't be able to offer any advice on how it works or anything like
that.


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

Hope Williamson
 

Sure thing!!


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

Amir
 

Well, don't know about the server side, but the website refreshes RSS feeds every hour, according to their FAQ, and one can't decrease this period. Sadly it's too much for my work as I need 10 to 15-minute refreshes or even 5-minute ones for some feeds.

Best,
Amir


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

Amir
 

Thanks. As I don't have a server myself, do you recommend the online version of Miniflux? And can we trust the speed of its online refresh? Many online RSS services add a delay (few minutes up to more than 30 minutes) to the usual refresh time. Still wish I could avoid online websites and services, though.

Best,
Amir

Try encrypt . I can't speak toward accessibility on windows as I don't use it on there, but it works quite good and the plans are affordable.
