How to Type Upside Down Letters and Backwards Text

While we are online, we can discover a lot of funny things. One of them is how to type upside down letters and backwards text. Actually, this is very simple and you do not need to download a software. It is also as fast as you type the letters and text.

All you have to do is to type your letters or text, then you can easily convert them to upside down or backwards or both. Then, copy the converted one and paste it anywhere you like. Presto! The fun begins.

Actually, there are already a lot of tools online that you can choose from and here are some of them.

The JavaScript program converts English letters to unicode characters and symbols that look inverted, to make it look like you've created upside-down text on the computer. This page uses the font Arial Unicode MS to display the flipped text. However, there are no upside down numbers and not enough upside down capital letters, so this tool supports lowercase letters only.

This tool may be better, since it supports numbers but not capital letters. This means that capital letters will be upside down but will remain as small letters. Also, you do not have a choice whether it is upside down or backwards since they will be both at the same time.

I believe this tool is best one, since you have a choice whether it is upside down or backwards or both. It is also applicable to numbers and capital letters.

Now, here is sample for you to see. Let us convert the sentences below.

Here is how to type upside down letters and backwards text. It is not only for fun but also to create very strong passwords.

Here is the converted one.
