Visible Speech: U+E780 - U+E7FF

Proposal 1996-12-09; revision 1997-01-21

Visible Speech is a phonetic alphabet invented by Alexander Melville Bell (you may have heard of his son, Alexander Graham Bell, who invented a fairly widely-used contraption). Bell was a teacher of the Deaf (as was the younger Bell, incidentally), and this alphabet was intended as an aid to teaching the Deaf how to pronounce words, by reducing sounds to a presumably unambiguous representation.

More information, and a Metafont font for Visible Speech, is available at any CTAN archive at ftp://ftp.cdrom.com/pub/tex/ctan/languages/vispeech.
