A text or message without vowels is a message whose letters A, E, I, O, U and Y are missing. Removing them generally makes the text less intelligible, which can be an intellectual exercise.
Example: Fr xmpl, ths s txt wtht vwls!
A word whose vowels have been deleted is therefore composed of consonants only. The human brain has a certain capacity to reconstruct the original word, taking into account only the consonants, the brain manages to guess the removed vowels. This principle works all the better as Latin languages such as English or French tend to alternate vowels and consonants.
Example: Complete: nl tkng nt ccnt cnsnnts! (only taking into account consonants!)
For a computer like dCode it's more complicated to reconstruct a sentence and find missing vowels without knowing the context, but it can list all possible words in a given dictionary.
To remove the vowels from a word is to go through each letter of the word and remove it if it is among 'A, E, I, O, U, Y'.
The Y is a vowel, but it is sometimes considered a consonant, especially phonetically, and some people do not take it as a true vowel.
Example: VOWEL becomes VWL
