Nine Dot Writing 'Fakoo'

The basis for the nine-dot-watches and nine-dot-displays is the Fakoo alphabet, in which the presentation of all characters is defined by only 9 switchable surfaces. Nevertheless, the text is easy to read and without confusion coded.

Fakoo Alphabet as tiles font

The Fakoo Alphabet was originally developed as writing for the blind and the sighted and therefore all characters represents on the principle of similarity with only 3 x 3 dots.

The 9-dot font is therefore particularly suitable for small displays to show more text informations on the same area:

The following comparison with different pixel and segment displays shows, in case of space problems particularly the 9-dot font 'Fakoo' is more effective and still allows a confusion-free text representation.

In the Fakoo font beside all printable punctuation marks and special characters also a lot of special symbols and even small letters are defined. The small letters are difficult to read and therefore should remain reserved for special applications.
