British Vogue is making strides when it comes to inclusivity with the release of a braille edition of the magazine’s latest issue.
The publication’s editor-in-chief Edward Enninful shared that the publication’s “first” braille issue is available as of Thursday with an announcement on Instagram. “The Vogue team and I are delighted by the response to the May issue, but what the process of making it taught us is that what’s most important are tangible and lasting changes,” he wrote, noting that readers are now able “to be sent the audio file, to print a Braille file of the issue at home for free or to register your interest in receiving a physical Braille copy.”
The history-making accessibility features come with an issue focused on disability with actress Selma Blair on the cover. Other advocates in the space, including Aaron Rose Philip and Sinéad Burke, were also featured in the magazine.
British Vogue didn’t respond to Yahoo Life’s request for comment. However, Enninful penned more of his thoughts in the editor’s letter included in the issue. “Disability should feel personal to us all,” he wrote. “The time has come for us to get real about who we are as a society, and for fashion to build a better, more accessible and inclusive industry.”
