All Access allow the visually impaired to read the newspaper again

May 23, 2014 - Art Smith
According to the National Institute for the Blind, more than 6 million Americans have vision impairments that make reading difficult or impossible. But thanks to All Access, you can read The News and Sentinel despite poor or no eyesight.

Features built into All Access make it possible for people who have problems reading small type to read the newspaper.

When viewing the digital version of the newspaper on a tablet or smart phone, users can enlarge the article by touching their fingertips to the screen and spreading them apart.

When viewing the e-edition on a computer, users can pick one of three sizes to view the page with the largest being about twice as big as the actual newspaper page.

Most articles on the web version of All Access and the app versions allow you to read the story by clicking on the headline and loading the story in an e-reader. The e reader has three choices of type sizes with the largest being several times larger than the newspaper page.

The e-reader also has a link to "LISTEN TO STORY." When you click on the link, a voice will begin reading the story to you.

If you or someone you know struggles with being able to see the print in the newspaper, validate your print subscription and take advantage of the All Access technology to read the newspaper.

All Access is available to all print subscribers, and through a digital-only subscription package.
