The basis for the nine-dot-watches and nine-dot-displays is the
Fakoo alphabet, in which the presentation of all characters
is defined by only 9 switchable surfaces. Nevertheless,
the text is easy to read and without confusion coded.
The Fakoo Alphabet was originally developed as writing
for the blind and the sighted and therefore all characters
represents on the principle of similarity with only 3 x 3 dots.
The 9-dot font is therefore particularly suitable for small
displays to show more text informations on the same area:
The following comparison with different pixel and segment
displays shows, in case of space problems particularly the 9-dot font
'Fakoo' is more effective and still allows a confusion-free text representation.
In the Fakoo font beside all printable punctuation marks
and special characters also a lot of special symbols and
even small letters are defined. The small letters are difficult to
read and therefore should remain reserved for special applications.
