Wow! 500! it's too much bro, although the server can handle it, but I'll incur a bit of extra cost which can be problematic for me.

Have you tried heroku?

There, you can deploy Miniflux for free without the need of a server.

Amir bro,

Actually yes, you can asign article commands to NVDA for instance I've asigned "O" for moving to the next article and "shift+O" for moving to the previous article. Thus I get around this problem.

Regarding article summary, yes, that's the issue which I also feel but if you go to the "feeds" link, there you can find the link for "refresh all feeds in background"

However, I'll recheck this link again.

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

Trouble reading messages with HTML embedded tables in Outlook 365

Jessie Mabry
 

Good morning, everyone,

I'm hoping that there's a simple fix for this and I'm just missing something.

I use Outlook 365 as my mail client and sometimes find myself switching screen readers just to read my mail. This is because NVDA detects tables in the vast majority of my HTML messages to the point where the verbosity makes them difficult to read. The tables often seem nested or non-uniform, too, which increases the verbiage more. I have NVDA set to ignore layout tables in HTML documents, but I have all the table detection features in the Document Formatting dialogue enabled because I like to hear about useful tables in other contexts. I'm using NVDA 2020.2. Other screen readers I use strip out any unnecessary tables and read content as text. Is there any way to make NVDA do the same? It's a much more fluid experience.

Thanks for your help,
Jessie

Determining what settings in group policy are causing NVDA to not pick up data from controols

Pranav Lal
 

Hi all,

I was trying to install mysql and found the installer to be inaccessible.
This was on my work laptop. I tried the installation on my home machine and
had no problems.

The work machine has all kinds of security policies applied. It runs Windows
10 version 1809.

Many screens in the installer were being reported as "unknown" by NVDA.

Are there settings in windows group policy which would cause NVDA not to
see controls correctly?

Pranav

The groups.io interface doesn't expose e-mail addresses of senders. To reply to the sender, do the following:
Follow the reply link when you are in the message. From the top of the page, use your screen-reader's find feature to look for the word private. It’s a button. Activate it with the space bar and the message will go to the sender and not to the group.
