Dear NFB-NEWSLINE Subscribers,

The NFB-NEWSLINE team is pleased to announce the introduction of a 
new feature for the telephone access method that will help 
subscribers streamline the reading of their favorite publications.

This new mode is easy to navigate; you are able to quickly move from 
section to section without having to return to the list of sections 
and their corresponding option numbers, and you still retain the 
ability to swiftly move from article to article.

Ever find yourself reading The New York Times, Wall street Journal, 
Time Magazine, Vogue or one of the other 400 publications on 
NFB-NEWSLINE and wish you could hear all the sections one after 
another, without having to go back to the section list and listen to 
all the sections in order to select the correct number of your 
choice? Now you can press 99 at the section level of your favorite 
publication as soon as you hear all the sections listed with their 
associated option numbers, and you will be placed into the new 
Continuous Reading Mode.

What about those Sunday mornings when you are relaxing with your 
coffee and wish to read your USA Today all the way through? Using the 
Continuous Reading Mode you can hear every article in every section. 
With the easy navigation of Continuous Reading Mode, you can read an 
entire newspaper beginning to end, or skip any section that you are 
not interested in by simply pressing the * key.

While reading the Metro Section of The Washington Post, you can still 
move from article to article by a press of the 3 key as you have 
always done in the past. Need to have an article emailed to you for 
your personal use? Press the pound nine key combination and it is on 
its way to your in box.

Once you are finished using the Continuous Reading Mode and wish to 
exit, press the pound key followed by the * key and you are 
immediately returned to the section level of the publication that you 
are reading.

These new reading tools do not affect the existing tools you are 
accustomed to using. Pressing Pound 9 will still email articles to 
your email address in our system. Pressing 3 will still move you to 
the next article in a publication even while in Continuous Reading Mode.

For users of the "My Newspaper" feature that allows you to design 
your very own customized publication, we have also enabled the 
Continuous Reading Mode so you can quickly move through the content 
that you find to be of most value to you.

Summary of Continuous Reading Mode Tools:

99 Turn on Continuous Reading Mode from the Section Level

* Skip to next Section of the Publication while in Continuous Reading Mode

Pound* Return to Section Level

We hope you enjoy this new reading feature of the NFB-NEWSLINE 
service, which was designed to provide you with more flexibility in 
your reading style and an opportunity to efficiently discover other 
sections in the publications that you read.

We would very much like to have your comments on this new Continuous 
Reading Mode. Please call us at (410) 505-5896 or email me at 
<mailto:swhite at nfb.org>swhite at nfb.org to let us know what you think!

We wish you very Happy Holidays and a Wonderful New Year!
