Typing Backwards?

Typing backwardsWe recently received an email asking if we could produce a “backwards” font in English to allow people to type from right to left for a bit of fun and because it seems like a thing that left-handers can do.  There are already a number of fonts that allow you to do this. e.g. here
http://www.fontspace.com/category/backwards

We installed the “Backwards” font on our PC and it allows you to either:

Backwards font for left-handed typing?

Though you do have to work out all the letters and type them in reverse sequence, which is surprisingly hard!  And it only works on your local computer with the font installed (I cheated for the image above by doing it in MS Word then getting a screen capture image). But it was fun so maybe give it a go!

We also found an easier way of achieving the same thing, using the tool at
http://www.upsidedowntext.com

That allows you to type normally then choose the effect you want – backwards, upside down or both, and then it creates the output for you.

Or is that just a left-handed thing?
This also lets you copy and paste the backwards text into web applications, social media etc.
