NFB-NEWSLINE ®, a free audible newspaper service for blind and print-disabled people, has just launched NFB-NEWSLINE® Mobile, a free iOS application now available in the Apple App Store, featuring the text of over three hundred newspapers, forty magazines, and wire feeds, plus personalized television listings. This easy-to-learn and use app allows NFB-NEWSLINE® subscribers to view and download their favorite publications with their iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch.
LightHouse Donor Relations Coordinator Lisamaria Martinez uses the app and said, “I’ve been a subscriber to Newsline for nearly two decades. In recent years though, I’ve found that having a phone stuck to my ear to get news just wasn’t what I wanted or how I wanted to access news. It was much easier to read the news online but the downside was that I missed Newsline’s easy access to daily local newspapers. Now that Newsline is an app on my iPhone I am much more informed about local elections, events and news. I finally feel connected to my city thanks to Newsline.”
