SignWriting List
September 17, 2014

Hello Steve -

I agree with Bill - 

This is so impressive that it is hard for me, a “mere mortal" to fully grasp the magnitude of it all -

Thank you for doing this mind-blowing work - The http://signpuddle.net/iswa is chocked full of information -

If we someday have a SignWriting Symbols TrueType Font with all 37,811 glyphs in one font…that will be incredible -

Val ;-)

There are 37,811 line glyphs and 25,429 fill glyphs, available in 4 styles: as Unified SVG (2 color), as Line SVG, as Fill SVG (white), and as Fill SVG (black). Every style has either 37,811 glyphs because it includes the line or it has 25,429 glyphs because it is fill only. The individual SVG files are named after the symbol key and available in one of 12 different zipped directories.

I should be able to create 2-color fonts in a variety of formats that can be downloaded and installed, or streamed over the internet for viewing without installation. People who install the font locally will decrease their internet traffic by 96%. Instead of a page size of 1.1 MB of streamed SVGs or TTFs, the page will include 36 KB of FSW text.
>> 
>> Once the new font files are loaded with the TrueType outlines, I will need to map those glyphs onto a set of characters. Using Open Type features, I have put together 3 more text files, each is over 1 MB. The feature files map a set of strings onto the glyphs in the font. Each file contains a different set of target strings. There is one for FSW symbol keys, another for Unicode 8, and a final set for Unicode PUA. Regardless of our character set choice, we should be able to utilize a client side font and reduce our network traffic by 96%.
>> 
>> All of these files are available on the ISWA 2010 Font Reference in the Symbol Font Development section.

>> 
>> I am hoping to have the new font files available soon. I am making progress with FontForge and python scripting. I will keep you posted.
