The New York Times has changed Wordle’s solutions
What is Wordle?
Wordle is a tool for visualizing texts. Wordle gets the most relevant words from a given text and arranges them in a word cloud based on their frequency, with the most prominent words being shown at the biggest size.
In June 2017, New York Times changed Wordle’s solutions to only show 10 words per page. The change was seen as a way to limit software piracy, but also made it more difficult for users to get to know Wordle because they can no longer see which pages are heavily loaded with information and which ones have fewer data.
Why you should use Wordles
Wordle is a web-based tool that creates a word cloud of your input. The New York Times has changed solutions by not allowing public results to be saved and changing the font size, size, and color scheme for words in larger fonts.
The changes have caused those who use it for work to have less data control, with more problems of accessibility and inconsistent information when working with printed words. Forcing us to rethink our process before utilizing this platform again.
We have had many issues trying to utilize it in our current project. This can be fixed by creating a button on The New York Times website that is accessible to everyone who visits their site. The platform should not allow any changes of results other than their original state, with consistent font type, size, and color scheme.
Many companies use word clouds because they help see patterns and trends in data that would otherwise be difficult to decipher. We do hope these issues are fixed because we love using platforms like these to make data easy to comprehend. This helps us connect complex information for a wide audience across platforms and makes data more understandable for all viewers.
Show off your personality with your word cloud
There has been some discussion about how you should do a word cloud now that The New York Times has changed Wordle’s solutions. In the old, you could take as much text as you wanted and paste it in.
Now, with the new, only 500 words can be included for each cloud. Some people are happy with this change because it will force them to think about what is important and cut out any extraneous information from their clouds. Others are disappointed because they liked having more control over the size of their word clouds.
If you don’t want to be limited by The New York Times, there are a couple of other options. You can purchase Wordle from 4Apps Ltd., and then use it for as long as you want (the price is listed at $3.99). If that sounds like too much, you could try some other options like Cacoo or Cloudmaking instead. Both have limitations on how many words you can include and what fonts are available, but neither limits your choices in terms of how many words go into each cloud.
Include your best photos in your Wordle
When designing I was careful to give a solution that was not excessively complicated, which is why I use 3 shapes: a simple outline of the word, and two little squares. This makes it easy for people to read a word in any position. It is also easy for people with poor vision.
The New York Times has recently decided to change its Wordle to one that’s more complicated and less user-friendly. With their Wordle, you have to be able to see where the individual letters are, or else you can’t make out what the word says. When using my old version of, you have 2 out of 3 options available at all times, with your peripheral vision filling in any gaps in case you need it.
