NFB-NEWSLINE subscriber David Denotaris said: “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.

"To this day, the alert systems available on television are not accessible to the blind, but now with the AccuWeather emergency warning system on NFB-NEWSLINE, I will have the same information and at the same time as my sighted co-workers, neighbors, and peers.”
