    It uses unicode UTF-8 characters which look like upside down ascii chars
    - sourced from character sets such as Latin Extended and International
    Phonetic Alphabet.

    That is the underlying methodology. The practical 'how' is to use a
    website which has an online converter, of which there are a number.
