Binary, also known as Droidspeak, was the computer language composed of electronic beeps, bloops, whines, and whistles of droids. All droids could “speak” and understand binary. There were some examples of people that spent so much time with their droids that they were able to pick up a fluency of the language—such as Revan, the Jedi Exile, Kit Fisto, Atton Rand, Bao-Dur, Anakin and Luke Skywalker, Wat Tambor, Kyle Katarn, Corran Horn and Cade Skywalker—although they weren't able to synthesize it. Generally, a whistle ascending in pitch was an affirmative, and one of descending pitch was a negative. It was sometimes possible to understand Binary from the pitch in which it was spoken - notably, expert slicer Zakarisz Ghent displayed an ability to understand the details of the language to an almost perfect degree.

Preceded by the archaic CBell-1, the Droidspeak standard was established by Industrial Automaton's line of astromech droids. It later became the standard mode of communication for droids from many manufacturers, all of whom paid IA a small licensing fee to use the language.

The father of modern droidspeak was considered to be none other than Yperio Baobab, of the prestigious Baobab family.
