Reading RSS feeds in Max

January 14, 2013 | 12:08 pm

is there an object that can look for RSS feeds on a certain keyword and show them indide Max? I would like to get for example the latest news on the banking crisis and then let it read out using aka.speech

Hello,

I never used this myself but this tool can parse XML files, hence RSS feeds:

People say it is great.

PS: I think I misunderstood your question, and I cannot delete my post…

Hi,

if you are asking for how to search for RSS feeds on the web that contain a specific keyword, I’ve no idea how to do that (neither with Max nor without). However, if you have a specific RSS feed that you want to search, then you could use [jit.uldl] to get the feed and then [sadam.rapidXML] to parse it. Once it’s parsed, you can get the -s of the -s in the RSS and do a regexp-style search for your keyword.

Hope that helps,
Ádám
