>Dear Fellow Federationists,
>As you may have heard, the Department of 
>Transportation (DOT) has taken an important step 
>toward improving air travel for blind 
>passengers. Â After years of advocacy by the 
>National Federation of the Blind, DOT released a 
>supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking on 
>September 26 proposing updates to the Air 
>Carrier Access Act that would require airline 
>Web sites and automated airport kiosks to be 
>accessible to the blind. Â DOT is seeking 
>feedback on the proposal, which can be found at 
> We are urging everyone to comment.  As an 
>organization, the NFB will be submitting formal 
>comments using the Federal e‑rulemaking 
>However, regulations.gov is not fully 
>accessible, making it difficult for members to 
>submit individual comments.  For this reason, 
>we ask you to submit your individual comments (a 
>template is attached to help you format your 
>comments and provide you with some suggested 
>talking points) to 
><mailto:airlines at nfb.org>airlines at nfb.org by 
>December 31, 2011.  Please include your mailing 
>address in the email.  A staff person at the 
>NFB headquarters will submit each individual 
>comment to the docket on regulations.gov before 
>they are due on January 9.  To request NFB’s 
>official comments or ask questions about the 
>proposed rules, please send an e-mail to
