Hi! Amelina is on her holidays at the moment, so I’m stepping in to write a blog post. I’m Alex and my blog nickname is ido ‘cos I’m an Information and Development Officer here in Enquire. My job is to keep the website running.
I want to blog about the RSS girl. She was drawn by Matt Forsythe at comingupforair.net, and she can help you get all the posts from this blog when they arrive.
You’ll also need a feed reader. I use google reader, although there are plenty more. There’s a nice article on the RNIB site about accessible RSS readers and DAISY has more information on RSS and accessiblity. If you know of any good accessible feed readers, please let us know by writing a comment.
If you’re wondering what all the fuss is about, why not look at this commoncraft video? I hope it will explain all about RSS and web feeds.
I like the video, but I know it’s not for everyone. If you want a transcript of the video, click here.
