Organization helps those who can not see read their newspaper
February 1, 2011 - Art Smith
The National Federation for the Blind offers a unique service for those that are unable to read the printed, or even the web versions, of newspapers due to vision problems. They read it for you, and it can be accessed by anyone with a touch-tone phone.
The service uses the RSS feed produced by the website to provide a verbal version of the newspaper. The person using the system dials in and enters a code, using the phone keypad, they pick what they want to read and the service plays back the stories.
The service is available to anyone that has lost their vision.
The following newspapers are available in West Virginia:
