RSS Feeds on the Web

Feeds on the Web allow you to automatically receive updated information from your favorite Web sites. Feeds are provided by more and more Web sites all the time. Basically, the process involves you subscribing to the feed, which usually is free, and then your feed reader (Internet Explorer or other feed reader) shows if there is any updated content. Here is what to look for and how it works with Internet Explorer 7.

Internet Explorer 7 checks every Web page you visit for feeds. If a feed is available, the graphic button for feeds on the Internet Explorer toolbar changes from gray to orange. JAWS verbally announces feeds on Web pages you visit, beginning with version 8.0 and later. You may have heard JAWS announce "RSS Feeds" on some pages you visit and may have wondered what that means. Finally, you can also set up Internet Explorer to play a sound when it notices a feed for a page. Choose this link to learn more about Feeds on the Web and how to subscribe to and use them.

Web Design and Using JAWS on the Internet

Bring greater accessibility to your Web site! Learn more about how JAWS works on the Web! Visit our Surf's Up Web site for examples of how to write effective HTML code and use JAWS and MAGic on the Web. Find more information on our Accessibility Tips and Web Design page, with links to free HTML tutorials, validation tools, guidelines, and other resources!
