Derrick and Meredith Day, students at West Middle School, were beta testers for the new Uno Braille card set that was released by Mattel on October 2, 2019.

Mattel has teamed up with the National Federation of the Blind to make Uno Braille, the first official Uno card deck featuring braille, making the game accessible to the more than 7 million people with blindness and low vision living in the United States. Uno Braille features braille on the corner of each playing card to indicate the card’s color and number or action. Play instructions featuring .BRF (braille readable files) are available for download while voice-enabled instructions are available on Amazon Alexa and Google Home.

In addition to beta testing the Uno Braille game, Derrick has found an accessible format for coding and has coded a multiplication app on his computer.
