I have TrueType fonts for Olaetian, Chispa, Zirienka, Jarda, Tirelat, and
some others on my ftp site (ftp://ftp.io.com/pub/usr/hmiller/fonts/). 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; Vlika.zip 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.
