NBD INTRODUCES AUDIOTAPE BROCHURES FOR THE BLIND

 DETROIT, March 30 /PRNewswire/ -- NBD Bank has introduced a free audiotape brochure series for the benefit of individuals who are blind or visually impaired. The bank teamed up with Southfield-based AM radio station WWJ to produce the five-cassette series, describing various NBD accounts and banking services. It is available across Michigan through the bank's Telephone Banking Center at 1-800-CALL-NBD (225-2563).
 The audiotapes cover basic banking needs, such as checking accounts and credit cards; convenience services, such as telephone banking; borrowing needs, including various loans and mortgages; and premier services, including asset management and investment services (see chart).
 "NBD is offering these audiotapes as a part of our commitment to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and as a tool to make our banking services available to a broader customer audience," says Walt Berger, director of NBD's Property Management Division and chairman of the bank's ADA Compliance Task Force.
 "We think of this service as good marketing in the spirit of ADA. We welcome the business of people who are blind and visually impaired and are ready to serve them in any of our branches statewide."
 NBD's ADA Task Force was formed to lead the bank in its compliance with the federal act. The group has met with and received feedback from advocates for people with disabilities about NBD's compliance plans.
 WWJ donated studio time and the voice of Ed Barrett, the station's production coordinator, for the project. Each cassette case in the series will carry a Braille label. NBD is working with the Tri-County Braille Volunteers, who are transcribing and duplicating the labels.
 The tapes are available through NBD's Telephone Banking Center by calling 1-800-CALL-NBD (225-5623).
