WCode general use-case

Why should it be used?

Comparatively, WCodes are:
  • shorter – meaning lesser number of words. Since 1 when spoken, is again a word: ‘ONE’
    As in the example above:
    6 digits
    4 nouns
    CatAppleMango Tomato
  • 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.
