Mattel introduces a braille version of UNO

UNO card in Braille

Mattel announced Tuesday that fans of the game can now buy UNO Braille. With more than 7 million people who are blind and low-vision in the US, Mattel worked with the National Federation of the Blind to make the game more inclusive.

“With the launch of UNO Braille, we’re making a real impact on a community that has been underserved by providing a game that both blind and sighted people can play together,” said Ray Adler, Global Head of Games at Mattel. “We are proud to have UNO Braille on-shelves and to be making UNO more accessible and inclusive to even more families.”

UNO Braille packaging features braille on the front and back for clear identification, and directs players to UNOBraille.com where they can find play instructions featuring. BRF (braille readable files) for download. Players can also access voice-enabled instructions through Amazon Alexa and Google Home.

“UNO Braille is doing more than making this beloved game more accessible. It’s also helping promote the importance and normalcy of braille by putting it in places people might not expect, and integrating it into the play of blind children,” said Mark Riccobono, President of the National Federation of the Blind. “The fact that a blind person is now able to play a classic game of UNO straight out of the box with both blind and sighted friends or family members is a truly meaningful moment for our community. I look forward to enjoying UNO Braille with my own family and I know that blind people across the nation will embrace this important and exciting step toward more inclusion and accessibility.”

UNO Braille is available through Target stores nationwide and on Target.com for $9.99. Visit UNOBraille.com for more information.
