NFB-NEWSLINE® offers blind and physically-impaired individuals free anytime, anywhere access to over 300 newspapers and magazines as well as TV listings through any touch-tone telephone, over the Internet, or by downloading to a digital talking-book player or MP3-playing device.
For more information about NFB-NEWSLINE®, or to sign up for services, please call President Sam Gleese at (601) 969-3352 or visit nfbnewsline.org.

To be eligible, you must be legally blind or have a physical or learning disability that prevents you from reading the paper independently. Your eligibility is not dependent on, nor restricted to, affiliation with any particular consumer or support organization; the only thing that matters is that you cannot read the newspaper. If you are eligible for the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped, you already qualify for NFB-NEWSLINE®! Register by calling the Mississippi Blind and Physically Handicapped Library Services at (601) 432-4111 or visiting www.mlc.lib.ms.us/servicestolibraries/BPHLS.html or by calling the National Federation of the Blind toll-free at 1-866-504-7300 to request an application. You may also download an application in PDF format or fill out our online form to register by visiting www.nfbnewsline.org. After your registration is processed, you'll receive a letter containing your activation codes and instructions for how to begin reading the newspaper with NFB-NEWSLINE®.
