How to Flip Text to Read Backwards


Flipping text to read backwards can add variation to your social media account statuses or posts on Facebook, Myspace and Twitter. Reverse symbols, words, phrases or entire sentences to confuse your friends. Twisting these entries can initiate new discussions and comments. For instance, the word "Hello" when read backwards is "olleh." Alternately, copy and paste backwards text into the body of an email to challenge the recipient of your message.

  • Double-click the "Internet Explorer" application shortcut to launch the browser.

  • Type "," "" or "" in the browser's address bar and press the "Enter" key on your keyboard to load one of the websites.

  • Type the text that you want to flip in the box that asks for text, symbols or letters.

  • Click the "Backwards Effect" check box or "Upside Down Effect" check box. You can choose both or other effects.

  • Click the "Flip" button to see your newly generated backwards text or let the box generate it for you after you finish typing.

  • Right-click the backwards text that appears in the box at the bottom of the website and select "Copy" from the drop-down menu to copy the selected text. Right-click inside an empty text box wherever you want this backward text to appear and select "Paste" from the drop-down menu to paste the text in the selected box.

Tips & Warnings

  • Alternatively, flip your text manually by typing out the word normally and then work backward to form the word or phrase in reverse. For example, "flip text backwards" becomes "sdrawkcab txet pilf."
