Answers to Questions (FAQ)

What is mirror writing? (Definition)

The mirror writing, sometimes called specular writing, is the writing of a message in reverse from a text reflected symmetrically as in a mirror.

Example: mirror

Mirror writing should not be confused with upside-down writing, or inverse/reverse writing.

How to write in mirror writing?

Automatic method: use dCode, indicate your text (with several handwriting renderings) or an image.

Example: Reflection mirror word: edocd

Manual method: to make this operation by hand, the best way is to use a mirror and rewrite it by looking at 45°.

The result generated on dCode is an image that can be copy-pasted into a word processor or an email but on most websites that will not work because they do not provide this functionality.

Only image files (JPEG, PNG, etc.) are accepted in the upload form. For DOC, WORD, PDF copy the text parts in the form input.

Example: mirror

Why Leonardo da Vinci wrote using mirror writing?

Leonardo da Vinci is known to have written some notes with a mirror writing, probably to avoid an encryption while retaining a reasonable write speed. Leonardo was left-handed and it is slightly easier to write from right to left for a left-handed person.

When to use mirror writing?

Mirror writing is sometimes used on ambulances or police vehicules in order to be read through a back-viewer.

Some people, often forced right-handed, testify to write easily / regularly in the mirror, for pleasure or because they have the feeling that their hand prefers this mode of writing.

More generally, it's a fun way to hide text and make it less readable.
