Heptal is an alternative alphabet for English created by Katie Molnar. Its name (derived from the Greek word for "seven") refers both to the fact that it was originally designed to be rendered on seven segment displays and to the fact that it took seven years to develop it to its present, stable state. Katie started designing it in high school in 2003 and primarily uses it for personal notes. Since then, it has gone through several major revisions, including replacing letters that were too ambiguous, adding numerals, and moving from a block script to a connected script and finally to the current unconnected script.
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed
