Extract hidden text in an acrostic



Answers to Questions (FAQ)

What are the elements extracted from the acrostic?

It is possible to extract multiples items (non-exhaustive list) from a text, document or poem written as an acrostic.

Example: The text : ABC DEFGH I JK,
LMNOPQ RSTU,
VW XYZ.

- Initial letter of a line

Example: With a vertical reading: ALV

- Initial letter of a word

Example: The first letters are ADIJLRVX

- Letters in the middle or words or lines (mesostic)

- Last letters of words or line (telestic)

- First and last letters of words or line (acroleuton).

Generally, the hidden text is a name, a password, a first name, a secret code etc. The default example of dCode is from a psalm from Edgar Allan Poe. Other famous writers such as George Sand and Alfred de Musset have written famous acrostics.
