I have TrueType fonts for Olaetian, Chispa, Zirienka, Jarda, Tirelat, and some others on my ftp site ( Jarda actually has two fonts: the Visible Speech-like Ljoerr (originally spelled "Lhoerr"), and the Braille-like Pintek (anglicized form of "Pénteg"). The Tirelat script (Vlika) went through a number of revisions, and the old ones are still up on the ftp site; is the most recent. Unfortunately I never managed to figure out how to do anything with OpenType fonts for all the complex ligatures and vowel marks that a script like Niskloz or Kazvarad requires.
