Four New Publications Added to NFB-NEWSLINE

December 5, 2012

We are pleased to inform you that we have added four new publications to
NFB-NEWSLINE service, which brings our total to 361 publications.
NFB-NEWSLINE is an audio information service for the blind which provides
access to print publications. We have 307 newspapers, including the
Associated Press newswire and the United Press International newswire; 38
magazines such as the Economist and AARP Magazine; ten international
newspapers including the China Daily and the Jerusalem Post, and four
Blindness Specific publications such as the Braille Monitor and the Matilda
Ziegler Magazine.

Two of the four new publications are part of a new category labeled Breaking
News Online. These are the Huffington Post, a very well-known online site,
and CNN, which is part of Turner Broadcasting Systems cable news network. To
access the new Breaking News Online publications, select option 5 off the
main menu and then press 1. 

The ACB Braille Forum, a publication of the American Council of the Blind,
is the third new publication. This is available in the magazine section, in
the Blindness Specific category, option 7 from the main menu followed by
option 1.

Finally, a newspaper from Topeka, Kansas, rounds out the additions, the
Topeka Capital Journal, available by accessing option number 5 from the main
menu and then navigating to the state of Kansas. NFB-NEWSLINE subscribers
