FARGO — The National Federation of the Blind will be giving North Dakota residents full access to the NFB-Newsline service for the next 60 days. The move is an initiative to provide the blind free access to news, including the coronavirus situation.

The NFB-Newsline is a free audio news service for anyone who is blind, low-vision or otherwise print-disabled. It offers access to publications, emergency weather alerts, job listings and more. NFB-Newsline provides access through the phone, IOS app, a website, Amazon Echo and Victor Reader Stream.

Residents who are legally blind, or those helping a blind family member or friend to register, can contact NFB of North Dakota state president Jesse Shirek at president@nfbnd.org or by calling 701-781-2526.
