There are a total of 50 “words” (groups of characters) in this text. The GA tries to maximise the score of a conversion of all 50 words into valid Latin words by checking each converted word appears in a Latin Word Dictionary

Explanation:

A ‘ sign following a word indicates that the word is valid Latin. A | (vertical bar) in place of a character indicates that the Voynich character(s) have no mapping defined into Latin – the Latin character could be anything.

The S: and R: lines show the Voynich characters (S) and their replacements (R) respectively.
