A vertical take on Morse code. These glyphs are read left-to-right from the bottom up and spaced so that 1 pixel = 1 unit of time, whether moving horizontally or vertically. Letters have 3 spaces between them and words have 7 spaces.
The result is a concise design that can easily be fed to tone-generation or image-to-audio software (e.g., AudioPaint) to produce accurately encoded & timed Morse code, no matter the frequency (speed) of the transmission. You can use this principle to create and place messages into music or games, make messages match a tempo or beat, arpeggiate words and turn them into music or sound effects, and much more.
The name is a pun. :P
21NOV2018: I've recently learned that many radio stations use an expanded version of the International Morse Code, adding many symbols and punctuation to it. Though these new glyphs are not part of the standard, they are commonly used and agreed on, so I will keep adding them as I find them.
Original size: 4pt (use multiples of this size for pixel perfection)
WIP ithkuil font
primare aspect characters
vertical/diagonal tail modifications
secondary and tertiary aspect characters
secondary and tertiary aspect character diacritics
tail modifications for the horizontal sections
The diacritic/tail modification placements would be handled using opentype GSUB and GPOS.
Enjoy the several hundreds of various zero width diacritics and modification characters stacking on top of each other.
Elae (Ayl-ah-ay) is a test font for a commission for a friend. It was easier to play with the shapes and finalize them a little on fontstruct before I switched to Illustrator and FontLab. It lacks a lot of characters as the commission only called for basics. The vowels are set up to function as diacritics with the capital vowels being used for standalone, initial, and multiple vowel sequences. i.e.; font = font, rogue = rogUe, edict = Edict, acoustic = AcOustic. Sample text looks best at pixel. New characters may be added by request.
