What

An encoding schema, where in literal words represent digital data.
Below, each symbolize the same data; The bottom one: words enclosed by slashes, is the equivalent WCode
One two three four five six
1 2 3 4 5 6

Where

WCode is to be used when a human needs to relay computer data from one to another manually.
Like when exchanging email addresses, mobile numberes or GPS co-coordinates by speech or writing

WCode general use-case

Why

Comparatively, WCodes are:
  • shorter – means lesser number of words, since 1 when spoken is again a word: one
    As in the example above:
    Original
    WCode
    6 digits
    4 nouns
    123456

  • simpler – thus unambiguous and easier to communicate and memorize
    Digits and symbols like : 1, @, _ are replaced with common words.
    Even complex datasets like : 27°59'17'N 86°55'31'E get transformed to a bunch of simple words.
  • safer – ensures accuracy and privacy
    The chances of making a mistake are reduced.
    Additionally checksum and encryption are supported.

How

  1. Get the WCode app
  2. Select the encode mode
  3. Enter your mobile number and generate the corresponding unique WCode
