Mattel released a braille version of Uno; OU enrollment has declined over the years

Today is Wednesday, Oct. 2, 2019. Here’s what you need to know:

Good morning, 

One of the world’s favorite card games just got more accessible.

Teaming up with the National Federation of the Blind, Mattel rolled out a braille version of Uno that will allow people who are blind or visually impaired to play. The cards feature braille on the front and back so players can reach the card’s color, number and corresponding instructions.

“UNO Braille is doing more than making this beloved game more accessible,” Mark Riccobono, preside of the National Federation of the Blind, said via Mashable. “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.”

Furthering the accessibility, Amazon’s Alexa and Google Assistant both have enabled voice instructions for players that might get confused and need help. Players are able to buy braille cards at UNOBraille.com, but the braille version of the game is available at Target.
