NFB-NEWSLINE® Newsliner BLAST
September 21. 2011
Greetings! We hope you are enjoying your week, and hope also that you
learning of two new options for our subscribers.
Firstly, we want to let you know about a new calling-in option.
If a local telephone number is not available in your area, you might
feel that the
only way to access NFB-NEWSLINE® is via the toll-free line. While the toll-free
line is always available to our subscribers, we would like to make those of you
with unlimited long distance calling plans aware of another way to
access our service.
If you have an unlimited long-distance calling plan and would be willing to make
calls to a local number in another city or state, you can call the
service at (646) 600-6969. Calling into this number reduces costs for
and helps to support the service you love.
Please be aware that neither your sponsor nor the National Federation
of the Blind
will be responsible if any charges are applied to your line as a result of these
long-distance calls, so make sure these calls will not result in extra fees.
Would you like to make sure you keep up on news from your state
agencies and other
entities that affect the lives of the print-disabled in your state? Through your
state information channel, NFB-NEWSLINE® helps you keep connected to news from
key state agencies and enables you to get other content such as
local store circulars, and more. With a new service enhancement, you
can now more
easily access this information by adding content from the state
to your favorites list! Whether you access NFB-NEWSLINE® over the
telephone or via
online methods, you can choose to place your preferred state information channel
into your favorites and get the scoop on state news in a snap!
When adding content from your state information channel, it's important to know
that there can be several publication-level content choices, for
example, in Illinois
you can choose to read the Illinois Information Channel and/or the
Book and Braille Service. Within each of these there are various
sections, and within
these sections there are articles. For example, currently in Illinois
content choice is the Guild for the Blind, and a section within that is Adaptive
Technology News; in that section are two articles that you can read.
As you know,
reading information provided under your state information channel is
reading a newspaper. This structure allows for great flexibility in your reading
experience. If you haven't checked out your state information channel recently
to discover what is available, you may do so by selecting "2" from the
If you use the phone to access NFB-NEWSLINE®, enter the favorites list
"4" from the main menu and press "7" to add a new favorite; once there, navigate
to your state by pressing "9" and, following the prompts, select the keys that
correspond to the content you wish to add to your favorites.
If you wish to add content from your state information channel to a
for an online access method, you'll want to (after logging in) select
All Your Favorites" link from the NFB-NEWSLINE® Online Main Menu. Once
the access method you want; please note that you can add a new
favorite to the phone-access
method from here. The easiest way to add content from your state
to your favorites is to select the link "Add a publication to your
Publications Organized by State List" and then search for the state
name you desire.
Once on the Web page listing the content available from a particular state (e.g.
Illinois), select the link for the content you desire. If you wish to add a new
favorite for the Podable News access method, you can choose to add
only that content
of particular interest; for example, by selecting the link "Add a
Section From Illinois
Information Channel to your Podable Subscriptions" you can then view
available in the Illinois state information channel, and can choose to only add
one section, such as the Hadley School for the Blind.
We hope that you enjoy these new service enhancements. If you have any
please don't hesitate to call us at (866) 504-7300.

"To me, music that breaks your heart is the music that stays with you
forever. It's one thing to be melancholy and one thing to be sophisticated,
but when you get the two of them together in a way people can relate to,
then I think you're on to something. You want the sophistication to lie in
the purity of the sound, the beauty of the arrangements, and the quality of
the performances."-Trumpeter Chris Botti
