SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WSBT) -- Mattel is making moves to be more inclusive.

The toy company introduced "UNO Braille", the first official deck that caters to those who are blind and low-vision in America.

“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, in a press release. “We are proud to have UNO Braille on-shelves and to be making UNO more accessible and inclusive to even more families.”

The packaging features braille on the front and back, as well as braille on the corner of each playing card that indicates that card's color/number or action. Players can also access voice-enabled instructions on Amazon Alexa and Google home.

The game is now available at Target stores nationwide and on Target.com for $9.99.
