# Page numbering in words [duplicate]

How is one supposed to number pages in words?

eg: 1 → 'Page one'

• \pagenumbering{style} does not provide an option for full words.
• Ctan under the category page numberring (page-nos) does not have any package which numbers the pages in words.

See Convert any number to corresponding word for several solutions. – Kundor Feb 10 '13 at 21:20

A solution to the problem can be achieved using

• fancyhdr : custom headers and footers
• fmtcount : format a counter to a variety of formats (including the english word)

These packages will be used as follows :

\documentclass{book}

\usepackage{fmtcount}%Page number to full english

\pagestyle{fancy}
\fancyhf{}

Or \numberstring{page} – egreg Feb 10 '13 at 21:25
