Get ready to play your fave card game in a whole new way! Mattel recently announced the addition of an inclusive edition of an activity icon—UNO Braille!

In a collab with the National Federation of the Blind, UNO Braille is designed to increase the accessibility and availability of braille games for the blind community and those with low-vision.

According to a press release, “NFB was involved every step of the way ensuring UNO Braille was designed to be authentic and held to the highest standards for the blind/low vision community.”

The game will feature the epic UNO deck, but with braille on the corner of each card. The braille will provide blind or low-vision players with the card’s color, number or action. This makes it easy for everyone, including blind-low-vision and sited users, to play UNO Braille together.
