How To Sign Up

To be eligible, you must be legally blind or have a physical or learning disability that prevents you from reading the paper independently. Your eligibility is not dependent on, nor restricted to, affiliation with any particular consumer or support organization; the only thing that matters is that you cannot read the newspaper. If you are eligible for the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped, you already qualify for NFB-NEWSLINE!

Register by calling the Washington Department of Services for the Blind, or by calling the National Federation of the Blind toll-free at 1 (866) 504-7300 to request an application. You may also download an application in PDF format or fill out our online form to register. After your registration is processed, you'll receive a letter containing your activation codes and instructions for how to begin reading the newspaper with NFB-NEWSLINE.
