Audiology Discussions is an international forum for professionals working in audiology and related areas. It contains a number of specialised audiology forums. To find out more about these forums please see the forum introduction. If you do not have a feed-reader to view the highlights of the latest discussions occurring you may view these on this web page instead.

The advantage of using the RSS feeds given, is that if, you are a very busy person, it saves you time as you do not have to go to the Audiology Discussions forum directly but instead selected highlights, of the latest topics posted, on the forum come direct to your computer desktop.

The main disadvantages of using just the feeds is that not all the forum areas are given on the feeds, so you will not be able to see everything going on. In addition the feeds are normally only updated once or twice a day, whereas the forum is being updated continuously throughout the day (all messages put in by the forum users show up instantly on the forum), so you will not get any news immeadiately, up to the last second.

 

How do I View (Use) the RSS Feed Given Here

Further specific instructions can be found on each of the feed pages, to which links have been given above. However a summary of what is involved is given below as well.

To view the contents of an feed (such as the one given above) you need to put the feed into your feed-reader software (this is called subscribing to the feed). This is done by either dragging the button given on the feed page (click a selected link from above to get to this) into your feed-reader or copying the link location and pasting it into the appropriate place in your feed-reader. An alternative method would be to use a personalized news-site (search engine page) such as My-Yahoo, My-MSN, My-AOL or the Google Personalised Home page. These all have built in readers. In addition, some modern Internet browsers (e.g. Firefox) also have feed-readers have built into them.

But don't worry if you do not have access to any of these technologies as you will be able to see highlights here, or better still if you join as a member of the forum you will be able to see all the contents (including that of other forum areas) as well as the headlines as given in these feeds.

 

What are RSS Feeds & RSS Feed-readers?

RSS feeds (which are also referred to as ("xml-feeds", feeds", "news feeds", "syndication feeds", and "digests") are files that usually contain a list of the items most recently posted on a website (but are used for lots of other purposes too). They usually aren't designed to show up nicely in web browsers (although some can look good in some modern browsers). Instead, they have to be used with computer programs referred to by such names as "feed-readers", "news feed-readers" or "aggregators" as described above.
