dining guide containing a list of restaurants 
located outside the hotel, and information on 
local shopping opportunities as well as some area transportation options.

To access the agenda on the phone, you’ll want to

our on-demand article-request feature, you can 
also request that details of a certain meeting or 
event be sent to your e-mail account; you can in 
this way set up your own agenda tailored to your

when listening to an article press #9 (pound

Now the blind and deaf blind have independent on 
demand access to weather alerts through 
NFB-NEWSLINE using a standard touch-tone 
telephone or IOS device such as an iPhone.

A NFB-NEWSLINE® subscriber commented: “For the 
first time I am able to easily gain access to 
emergency weather service alerts by making a 
phone call.  With the addition of the 
AccuWeather® alerts on NFB-NEWSLINE®, I can 
access the information that I need to keep my family safe.”
