Quadoo Quadoo

The Quadoo alphabet was developed by Alexander Fakoó in 2008 as an alternative version of the Moon alphabet. Quadoo is easy to read, since the characters can be assigned to Latin letters without any problems and without any confusion. It is also easy to write with a square stencil, since there are no arcs, circles or the like.

Only the four sides and the two diagonals of a square are used to represent all characters. This means that the characters only consist of 1 to 6 lines and possibly additional dots at the corners to represent special characters. Special emphasis was placed on the easy readability of Quadoo.

Since the characters only consist of lines, there are other areas of application in addition to writing for the blind, where only simple materials such as twigs, nails, matches or the like are available to display information (outdoor or survival).
