Answers to Questions (FAQ)

How to encrypt/write using Dotsies font?

Dotsies is a pixelized alphabet which replace the Latin alphabet (considered to be aging) and created to offer compact writing and fast reading. Each of the 26 letters is replaced by a vertical bar consisting of 5 points that can be black or white / empty.

The complete alphabet is:

ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ
char(65)char(66)char(67)char(68)char(69)char(70)char(71)char(72)char(73)char(74)char(75)char(76)char(77)char(78)char(79)char(80)char(81)char(82)char(83)char(84)char(85)char(86)char(87)char(88)char(89)char(90)

Example: DOTSIES is written char(68)char(79)char(84)char(83)char(73)char(69)char(83)

The Dotsies writing on this page includes a tiny space between each character, whereas in theory this space should tend to 0.
