Finding Words

Finding words in phone numbers is not hard. Finding all possible words in phone numbers is somewhat harder, and you probably want to use a computer for that. Finding all possible words in a phone number and presenting the results of that search efficiently is somewhat tricky.

This is essentially how it works:

  1. First, our software looks at the search options you selected and makes some educated guesses for those options you did not specify.
  2. Any letters in phone number you entered are converted to numbers based on the selected phone keypad. Any spaces and punctuation marks are removed.
  3. The requested word lists are searched to see what words are in the phone number. The requested phone key pad determines how numbers are matched with letters.
  4. The words found in the phone number are sorted by what position they appear in, grouped, and arranged so that they can be presented in the simplest possible table.
  5. Our web site software makes up a web page which contains that table showing all the possible words for that number.

There are many different ways in which the same information can be presented. This is only one of them. In future, we may offer some other formats as well.
