Numerous new icons are tied together by the theme of inclusivity, introducing emojis for deaf people, blind people, people in wheelchairs, and those with prosthetic limbs.

There are 230 in total as a part of Unicode 12.0, with new emoji for the sloth, otter, ice cube, drop of blood, waffle, people holding hands, and more. This includes a deaf person in different skin tones, prosthetic mechanical limbs, a service dog and more.
