Re: Sad news regarding google reader



No, don't have emacspeak on there.  I have the standard windows emacs 
version on the windows box and really had no problem running it and 
creating files.  I'm using nvda with emacs too.  The emacs faq for 
windows can be helpful with installation and setup.  I don't do registry 
keys editing and it will need that to define a HOME directory for 
windows emacs.  With that, I can make a _emacs file which is what the 
.emacs file is called on Windows and put it in the HOME area and windows 
emacs will then find it.  Back to the more direct topic, emacs has had 
newsticker in it since version 22.x and that's a self-contained rss 
reader.  Also, gnus which has been part of emacs since version 22.x is 
supposed to be able to read rss feeds.  The newsticker package though is 
really versatile in terms of the number of different types of feeds it 
will read including once you  get it set up correctly pulling enclosures 
from rss feeds down from podcasts.  It'll be found with info newsticker 
if you have enough info documentation installed on the system.
