The upside down text generator works by swapping the basic letters of the Roman alphabet with similar characters from other languages and sets of symbols. This gives the impression of the letters being flipped 180 degrees.
Some of the characters don’t require flipping, such as “O” and “X”. Some of them have an easy replacement in the Roman alphabet (e.g. “b” can be swapped with “q”).
The upside down and reversed text does the same thing, but also reverses the order of the letters.
Unicode, which is basically an agreement on which letters computers can use, has over 100,000 possible characters. This includes the letters from thousands of languages, mathematical symbols, and emojis ☝️.
Many of the symbols used in this tool come from the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA). This alphabet is used to note all the possible sounds a human can create with their voice. Other upside down text symbols have more obscure origins, as seen in the table below.
