Hieroglyphic Message

The Hieroglyphic Typewriter incorporates the alphabet and number symbols together with a selection of determinative signs. It is designed as a fun entertainment app, so for ease of use the QWERTY keyboard includes close phonetic alternative glyphs for E, U V and X (which the Egyptians did not include). This allows you to quickly write names and short secret messages encoded in hieroglyphs then print them and send the results by email.

The keys include Latin alphabet symbols together with their hieroglyph equivalents and descriptions, which allows you to type messages naturally and at a glance see the translations.

The shift key changes the keyboard giving access to number glyphs and some determinative signs which you can include in your messages for fun and clarity.

More than 1000 glyphs including 400 Egyptian word examples and over 500 hieroglyphs from the Gardiner list. The history of Egyptian writing and mathematics, the use of the different types of symbols, how to write your name, how to recognize kings names and the story of the scribe.

All content can be printed including typewriter and calculator functions. There are also navagation and search text functions. You can quickly write names and short secret messages and then select print from the menu.
