In previous posts we wrote about Braille Bricks: Legos that have Braille on them. The company went a step further last month when it began offering building instructions for the visually impaired via Braille readers.
Now, the toy company Mattel is working on inclusivity. The company now offers a Braille deck of UNO cards. Developed in partnership with the National Federation of the Blind (NFB), UNO Braille makes the game accessible to blind and low-vision players.
"It's a sighted world, so it's important to have accessibility for the blind," said Raveena Alli. "But also to be able to pull out a deck of cards and say, 'Hey, there's Braille and print on this, do you wanna play?' And it will just be really fun."
At SDCB, we offer several vision rehabilitation programs that can improve quality of life for men and women living with vision loss. Please contact us to learn more.
