You're trying to get into the fox's den, but the sneaky fox has devised a puzzle that deters drowsy dogs. Can you get in?

You find a panel with this writing:

  • B9
  • Q4
  • F14
  • C7
  • There is no void

What could the fox possibly mean?

Reconstruct a well-known phrase. I hope your entire keyboard works!

Presumably the answer is

The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.
where B9 indicates the B of "brown" is the 9th character in the phrase,
Q4 for the Q of "quick", F14 for the F of "fox", and C7 for the C in "quick".
There are no spaces (no void) - though it's not immediately clear if that means no spaces in the answer, or merely in the counting.

The hint is because this phrase contains all letters of the alphabet, so your whole keyboard needs to work to type it.

The phrase is

the well-known pangram, "the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog".

The numbers are indices, e.g. B9 means that B is the 9th letter etc.
