How To Write Upside Down On a Computer

I am not sure when it would be useful to be able to write upside down on a computer, but should you wish to do so, here’s how you do it:

  1. Go to http://www.writeupsidedown.net/
  2. Type your text into the uppermost box
  3. Select the text in the bottom box and copy it to the clipboard (Ctrl C on a PC)
  4. Paste the text into your document or web page.

Easy!

This is what it looks like (based on the above text):

¡ʎsɐǝ

Some uses for this facility could be:

  • Book covers.
  • Novelty items.
  • Special effects in a story.
  • Greetings cards.

Yes, you could simply enter the text in the usual way, and then turn the page upside down, but that doesn't allow you to mix normal and upside-down text in the same document.

An alternative might be to create a document in the normal manner, and then scan it into the computer as an image, which you can then insert upside-down into an ordinary document. However, not only is that a whole ton of hassle, the quality of the text in the picture will almost certainly not be as clear as the ordinary text.

So, it looks like for producing upside-down text on a computer, that upside-down website is your best bet.
