I've tried thunderbird many times but it doesn't import my OPML
correctly. after importing, it doesn't fetch anything at all.

OK – I don’t have anything like that number of feeds which probably explains the  difference in performance although it sounds like we have very similar spec machines.

With me the update is instantaneous and there is absolutely no lag at all.

I have not encountered any problem with folders and articles yet but I am still in early days of using it.

I have just counted and I have currently 23 feeds from various National newspapers and blogs.

I only mention this as others might not have as many feeds also.

Just as a matter of interest how do you manage to keep up with monitoring over 100 feeds daily?

David, I also gave Thunderbird's RSS-reading capabilities a try, and was disappointed. First, I have more than 100 feeds and oftentimes Thunderbird struggles when it wants to update my feeds. My 2019 Core-I7 machine with 16GB of RAM and an SSD hard drive also becomes painfully slow when articles are being fetched, and navigation among folders gets atrociously slow. Second, I've imported an OPML file containing my RSS feeds into Thunderbird. Some of the items there are folders, like NEWS, Technology and NPR, containing several RSS feeds. However, Thunderbird lumps all articles for an RSS folder into that folder and fails to place articles belonging to each feed under that feed name. So if a folder contains, say, 10 feeds, you'll see all of their articles, sorted without no particular order, under that folder which isn't useful at all, and I can't add each RSS feed manually given the time it requires.

any good windows podcast client that allows offline downloading and accessible with NVDA

kavein thran
 

hi friends,

I have thousands of podcast feeds on internet explorer and have to
check for and download new items manually. Are there any rss reader or
podcast client that can download the enclosures automatically to it's
own folder and have features like importing opml and other great
features for podcast?

thanks


Honey - Browser Extension that finds Promo Codes on Websites

Don H
 
Edited

There is a extension for browsers called Honey that automatically searches for promo codes on certain web sites.  After installing the extension to Google Chrome and going to amazon Honey puts up some info on the web page that it seems that NVDA can't get to. Anyone using Honey with NVDA with any success?  Talking about using it on a Win 10 system with latest version of Google Chrome and NVDA 2020.2.


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

I have recently started using the RSS Reader built into Mozilla Thunderbird  and have found that very easy to use.

It is not a particularly well advertised capability of Thunderbird which is surprising.

The only slight quibble is that you cannot jump to your feeds  in the feeds list by first letter navigation but that is not really a game stopper.

The feed articles open into Thunderbird’s own web interface which is presumably a version of Firefox but all the articles I have read so far have behaved fine and all the media buttons tried so far also play.

Re: What is the NVDA key combination for pop up dialogues in Firefox or Crome

To save log in on firefox, you press alt+d or control+l then shift tab once, then right arrow twice. You’ll find the button to open password save panel.

I don’t use chrome.

Yes, FF and Croam automatically download files to a specified folder. The information bar sometimes says things like "do you want to save your login details" or "all this website to use your location".

That's the thing I am trying to access.

Wait until the thing is read, but I believe at least in chrome it's alt
shift A. Firefox just hit f67 to get to where you need to be and see if that
shows the dialogue you want. I don't use FF anymore.

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
to the options in FF to fix that.

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.

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!

Amir

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
to the options in FF to fix that.

Hello,

I've just moved over from JAWS to NVDA.

it.
Can you please tell me how this is done in NVDA?

Many thanks for your help.

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.

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
