I don't see why those shouldn't work.  Personally, I find that method to be "the long way."  There is an Add item in the context menu for the RSS Feed entry in the Outlook Folder Tree and it pretty much walks you right through adding the feed URL that you have.

This is one of those, "It's not rocket science," sort of things.  More of a "fill in the blank with the correct RSS Feed URL" and hit OK.  (There may be a couple of more steps, but I don't want to fully configure an RSS Feed I don't want.)

If these methods don’t work, try turning on the JAWS cursor, locating the button with that cursor, then pressing Jaws key+the PC key. This used to work often, but less so lately.

 

Then if that fails, try the touch cursor, shift-PC key and locating the button in case pressing enter works.

 

It crosses my mind that turning off JAWS and going with Narrator might be an option, but I’ve never tried it.

 

Little is more frustrating than going through an entire form, only for the last button not to work with a screenreader.

Have you tried using a different browser to see if the results are the same?  Also, after pressing spacebar or enter on the confirmation button try pressing, Insert + escape, to refresh / repaint the screen and see if that'll help.  I've found that on many websites the chromium browsers are slow to respond to key commands.

Have a question to see if any of you are having this issue. I am trying to access the menu for Laragon through the system tray. When I do, the menus are not showing or telling me which item I am arrowing to. It occasionally says submenu but cannot determine what's inside.

Seriously, if you think that Edge is worse than Chrome in terms of tracking and data mining, you need to do more reading.

Chrome is without equal when it comes to what it tracks and the profiles Google uses it to compile.

I use Chrome, but for very little.  If you (the generic you) are concerned about privacy then it makes sense to use a web browser focused on same like Brave, Vivaldi, or Epic along with a search engine that doesn't track like DuckDuckGo (and there are others).

Google is the data hoovering champion of the world, and Chrome is a huge part of that success.

moderated Re: brouser

 

Also, in reality, as far as I'm concerned there are only two classes of browser:

1. Chromium-based browsers.  These include MS-Edge, Chrome, Brave, Vivaldi (which now has an e-mail client included in the browser in its latest release as an option), Epic, Torch, and others.

2. Non-Chromium Based Browsers.  Firefox being the most obvious of the lot.  And I have never used any non-Chromium browser other than Firefox for years.

Anyone comfortable with any one of the Chromium-based browsers should be able to slide, with ease, into one of the others.  But I always like to have Firefox, too, in case the sticking point is something in the Chromium code base that all the browsers built upon it share.

Hi Rosie.

I'm using Windows 10 on my laptop. If you asked me a couple of months ago, I would have said, without hesitation, Edge was it for me. I started a job in April, and they required Google Chrome. That browser works well also. Having more than one browser can come in handy, because some sites work better in one than another with JAWS. If you only want a single browser for your use, Edge does a good job, and it's part of Windows 10.

Hope this helps. I'm by no means a power user in this area, so others' opinions are welcome.

Have a blessed day and don't work too hard.

Kevin and Jilly
