Re: Fluent Reader: a feature-rich and accessible Windows RSS reader

Oh, I just open 5000 windows every time. Lol it's really not that many,
it's probably only around 30. Therefore I really don't need it to give
me the full article, because I'd be opening the window. I do this
regardless of what reader I'm using.

I use Foobar myself. I used Winamp for a while but it didn't seem like
it was going anywhere.

There are a few things that winamp can't play but to be honest most

cross over chips.

I like the interface of the winamp program to.

Winamp is still aparently being developed but with its parent company
becoming shoutcast, who knows.

Its not been updated but winamp is on shoutcast's main page as a link,
so its  probably a given they havn't given up on it.

However, winamp at least the version going on is wacup, or winamp
community project, which is 5.666 with extras.

To be honest though unless someone can revive, and update and add new
things to a plugins database winamp is pritty much useless.

The only reason I continue to use winamp is that I have ahd it since
2000 and have built up a stash of plugins and configurations I wanted
to use.

I use VLC for video playback, and for some audio formats that Winamp
doesn't handle very well (some audio and video formats, Winamp cannot

through a track)

I know Winamp is widely used and is accessible.  Other players are as
well, but I'll let those who use them discuss them.  I usually use
Winamp.  I'll tell you why I use Winamp in general and other list
members may describe which players they like.

When using NVDA, you don't have the time marker feature JAWS
incorporated for use with Winamp.  But there is a utility made by the
late Carlos, who is much missed, that will allow you to set time
markers with any screen-reader or even without one.  It is completely
independent of and doesn't require a screen-reader be used.

Then, there is a plugin I use for slowing down or speeding up the
speed of material.  It doesn't keep the pitch constant, it slows down
and speeds up speed as though you were using a variable speed control
on a tape recorder or record player. That plugin is very useful to
me.  I digitized a lot of tapes and my tape recorder was running a
little fast.  I slow down the speed of the files when I play them in
Winamp.  They must be certain formats or the plugin doesn't work
properly.  I know MP3 will work,  There may be others but I don't
know what works and what doesn't.

Hello,

I use the windows Slack app every day at work and it works rather fine.

You can use f6 and shift+F6 to switch from the messages list, to the channels list or the message edit field. NVDA switches automatically in forms mode so that you can type your message, and it switches back to browse mode in other situations.

With the automatic forms mode switching you can navigate through the messages with up and down arrow keys.

Sometimes NVDA gets stuck because it cannot decide if enabling forms or browse mode, but in most situations, it works rather good.

There is a useful help for you to learn how to use Slack with a screen reader :

I have to agree with the other person who replied. It’s absolutely doable but it’s a bit cumbersome at times. Once you get familiar with its quirks you do get used to it, and ultimately every area of the app is accessible.

Hah. Okay, I think their more like what most other environments would call tags.

I can kind of see it from Google's point of view, having needed to build virtual filesystems a time or two myself.

When all that has really changed is the way you point to something, why go through the compute overhead of moving a potentially large file around?

And if that file needs to be reached from several places at once, why have to keep multiple copies of it? Especially when you serve millions of users, juggling billions of messages, all those little compute savings, disk IO savings, and cache actions add up to dollars.

And speaking of dollars, keep in mind that gmail's initial purpose, other than an ecosystem element, was to make advertising money for Google by allowing them to scan through all mail in gmail, to allow them to better target advertising to their users.
That is made computationally much less taxing, if they can cut down on duplication of data, and the need to compare content against other content to make sure they don't mess up their keyword weighting by having the same identical message processed several times, just because someone has it in multiple folders.

As much as I generally hate Google, I can admit the technical elegance of their solution.

Because they are labels.

Gmail can have real folders (such as All Mail), and virtual folders, which someone has described as "constantly updating search windows". The virtual folders get their contents based on the labels selected, but the mail has to exist in some real folder in order to be searchable and have a label.

That's why deleting a message from its real folder, deletes it from the virtual folder, because the virtual folders (label folders) don't hold any mail.

That's my understanding, anyway.

Re: Mostly used media player with NVDA

I checked. You have to stop play, unselect it, then close the program. Trying to resume play after unselecting it makes the program crash as well as does trying to play a new file. Its an inconvenience but I don't use it much and it’s a minor one for me.

The plugin used to work properly in XP, but not in Windows 7.

It doesn't keep the pitch constant, it slows down and speeds up speed as though you were using a variable speed control on a tape recorder or record player. That plugin is very useful to me. I digitized a lot of tapes and my tape recorder was running a little fast. I slow down the speed of the files when I play them in Winamp. They must be certain formats or the plugin doesn't work properly. I know MP3 will work, There may be others but I don't know what works and what doesn't.

More programmes should have foibles like this one

It does seem to present a challenge for some though, or maybe just ore time than some are willing to put into setup

Greetings. For me -- and many others, it is Foobar2000 all the way. I switched from Winamp which is no longer being developed other than the leaked releases which circulate around to Foobar2000 which is equally low-resource and quite well-maintained. Everything is customizable in Foobar2000 and that might also be its foible as you need to define your hot keys first. But once you do it, you can't be happier. Foobar2000 support is also mentioned in NVDA's manual.

Best,
Amir
