The National Federation of the Blind developed NFB-NEWSLINE® to be used by anyone who cannot read a printed newspaper because of a visual or physical disability.  NFB-NEWSLINE® uses the latest digital technology to bring blind and visually impaired readers an easy-to-use telephone service that "reads" all the text from various newspapers across the country.  Users need only a touch-tone phone and their personal identification numbers to access the nationwide, toll-free number.  By following a touch-tone menu, you will be able to access different sections of the newspaper,-the front page, the sports page, the business page, etc.  You choose the newspaper and voice you prefer.
The Newspapers from OR currently available through NFB-NEWSLINE® are:
The Oregonian
The Statesman Journal
Oregon AP Newswire
If you are a registered patron of TBABS, call Talking Book and Braille Services at 1-800-452-0292 or email tbabs.info@state.or.us, our staff can sign you up for the service over the telephone.  All users are assigned a personal identification number (PIN) and a security code to gain access to NFB-NEWSLINE® .
Funding for this service is provided by Oregon Commission for the Blind, National Federation for the Blind of Oregon and the State Library, Talking Book and Braille Services.
