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
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
Comparatively, WCodes are:
shorter – means lesser number of words, since 1 when spoken is again a word: oneAs in the example above:OriginalWCode– 6 digits– 4 nouns123456CatAppleMango Tomato
simpler – thus unambiguous and easier to communicate and memorizeDigits 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 privacyThe chances of making a mistake are reduced.
Additionally checksum and encryption are supported.
- Get the WCode app
- Select the encode mode
- Enter your mobile number and generate the corresponding unique WCode
- Have the reciever get his WCode app
- Select the decode mode on his device
- Enter your WCode
- Decode and voilà — your phone should now ring
* Your WCode remains same; You can always get it from the app but its best to keep it memorized
