Siekoo Siekoo

The Siekoo alphabet was developed in 2012 by Alexander Fakoó as writing for the blind. It uses as a basis the seven-segment display to display all characters. In contrast to many other segment fonts, there are no deviations from the 7 possible segments, even with wider letters.

The result is an alphabet with unmistakable yet easily legible characters that can also be used for electronic devices, since all characters consistently only use these seven segments. Blind people could use the characters on electronic devices that have seven-segment displays with tactile elements. Special emphasis was placed on easy legibility.
