From Bitstream's web page: "Bitstream Cyberbit is our award-winning international font. Based on one of our most popular and readable type designs (Dutch 801 BT [note: Bitstream's version of Times and Times New Roman]), it includes all the typographic characters for most of the world's major languages.

Future releases will provide support for "sanserif" typefaces, other platforms, other font formats, and even more languages. Bitstream Cyberbit is a work in progress. Bitstream is now distributing the roman weight of Cyberbit, free of charge, over the Internet!

Computer Modern Unicode fonts
Andrey V. Panov developed Computer Modern Unicode fonts in 2003-2007 by conversions from metafont sources using textrace and fontforge (former pfaedit). He wanted to create free good quality fonts for use in X applications that support many languages. Currently the fonts contain glyphs from Latin1 (Metafont ec, tc), Cyrillic (la, rx) and Greek (cbgreek) code sets. There are 33 fonts in the family: CMUClassicalSerif-Italic, CMUSansSerif-Bold, CMUSansSerif-BoldOblique, CMUSansSerif-Demi-Condensed, CMUSansSerif-Oblique, CMUSansSerif, CMUSerif-Bold-Nonextended, CMUSerif-Bold-Slanted, CMUSerif-Bold, CMUSerif-BoldItalic, CMUSerif-Italic, CMUSerif-Roman-Slanted, CMUSerif-Roman, CMUSerif-Unslanted-Italic, CMUTypewriter-Bold, CMUTypewriter-BoldItalic, CMUTypewriter-Italic, CMUTypewriter-Oblique, CMUTypewriter-Regular, CMUTypewriterVariable-Italic, CMUTypewriterVariable. The fonts come in type 1, OpenType and SFD, the universal spline format used by FontForge. The CMU Bright subfamily was added some time later in 2007.
In 2008, he made Heuristica (or Evristika), a serif family that extends Adobe's Utopia.
James Do, Vice-President of the Vietnamese Nom Preservation Foundation, writes about efforts towards the computerization of these scripts:

Electronic Font Foundry
The Electronic Font Foundry (EFF) in Ascot, Berkshire, UK, sells most classical fonts at about 15 dollars per weight, and makes custom fonts. Established in 1984, the foundry had 1300 fonts by 2012.
The font designer is Edward Detyna.
On July 4, 2002, Apostrophe wrote this: I'm currently having a difficult time trying to predict the past of EFF LondonA, EFF Liz, EFF Eric and EFF Formal, to name a few. I have a feeling that these folks just happen to be twins with entities that are currently across the Atlantic from them, namely Adobe Garamond, Cooper Black, Gill Sans and Copperplate Gothic. A friend of Detyna's writes this: When I met him at least twenty years ago, Edward and his associates had a font design studio based in Ascot, near London. He is a mathematician/statistician turned typographer, and was really on top of type design at the time. There are academic articles published on mathematical subjects on the internet. He's an old man now, but still a very smart guy. When he started, with fonts for Acorn RISC-OS (now defunct, but leading-edge British computer of mid-eighties to -nineties), he had very advanced and sophisticated algorithms for anti-aliasing and hinting, and his hand-hinting is still better than almost any other fonts I have used for screen work. He still sells fonts and adapts to user requirements promptly. I recently asked him to adjust the hinting on a font and he turns it around in a day.
Closed captioning fonts for TV, made according to the EIA 708-B specifications, include EFF Sans Serif CC, EFF Serif CC, EFF Sans Serif Mono CC, EFF Serif Mono CC, EFF Casual CC, EFF Script CC, EFF Small Caps CC.
EFF also has fonts for Vietnamese, Greek, Hebrew, and Cyrillic.

Free fonts by Vietnamese cartoon artist Nguyen Hung Lan (b. 1956, HoChiMin City) include the brush and handwriting typefaces VNI-Comicbook, VNI-Matisse, VNI-BriquetNormal, VNI-Disney-Normal, VNI-Diudang, VNI-Nhatban, VNI-Baybuom-Normal, VNI-Truck, VNI-Yahoo, VNI-Thanhcao, VNI-Thufap2-Normal, VNI-Thufap3, VNI-Thufapfan-Normal, VNI-Viettay-Normal, VNI-Butlong, VNI-HLThuphap (Treefrog style face), VNI-Netbut, VNI-Thufap1, VNI-Whimsy, VNI-OngDoHL. These faces include some real beauties, such as VNI-HLThuphap, VNI-OngDoHL, VNI-Thufap1, VNI-Thufap2-Normal, and VNI-Thufapfan-Normal.
At the end of 2004, I found these downloadable faces: HLButlatre, HLButlong, HLBrush1BK, HLBrush2BK, HLBrush3BK, HLComicBoom, HLComic2, HLFantasy1, HLFantasy2, HLFantasy3, HLFreewrite, HLGiotmuc, HLHoamy, HLNhenhang, HLSlapstickComic, HLDongian, HLThanhcao, HLThuphap1BK, HLThuphap2BK, HLThuphap3BK, HLThuphap4BK, HLVungchac. Many are extensions and Vietnamizations of existing faces. His fonts are for dual use in Latin and Vietnamese.
Type connoisseurs on a private forum wrote: The 3 Brushes are Ruach, Smudger and Spring. MyFonts (WhatTheFont) didn't give me any match for the other scripts (Butlater, Butlong, Netbutlong and Netco). Nhenhang is Pristina and Thanhcao is Fontdinerdotcom. I didn't find matches for Dongian, Giotmuc and Vungchac. [...] Even Scriptina is in there.
Polish type designer in Grudziadz (Stycznia) involved in the restauration of historical Polish type designs. At GUST.org, he created fonts for Polish such as QuasiHelvetica, QuasiCourier, QuasiChancery, QuasiBookman, Antykwa Półtawskiego (based on work by Adam Półtawskiego (1923-1928), constructed by Bogusław Jackowski, Janusz M. Nowacki and Piotr Strzelczyk), Antykwa Toruńska (1995, based on work by Zygfryd Gardzielewski, electronic version by Janusz M. Nowacki). Alternate URL for the latter face.
He runs FOTO ALFA. At the latter page, you can find these fonts in which Nowacki participated: Antykwa Torunska, Antykwa Pótawskiego, Rodzina krojów PL, Rodzina fontów LM (Latin Modern), Quasi Palatino, Quasi Times, Quasi Bookman, Quasi Courier, Quasi Swiss, Quasi Chancery. The Quasi series are Polish versions of standard URW and Ghostscript fonts. The Rodzina series are Polish versions of the Computer Modern families.
In 2005, he placed these fonts on CTAN: Kurier and Iwona. Kurier is a two-element sans-serif typeface. It was designed for a diploma in typeface design by Malgorzata Budyta (1975) at the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts under the supervision of Roman Tomaszewski. The result was presented with other Polish typefaces at the ATypI conference in Warsaw in 1975. Kurier was intended for Linotype typesetting of newspapers and similar periodicals. The design goals included resistance to technological processes destructive to the letter shapes. As a result, amongst others, the typeface distinguishes itself through intra- and extra-letter white spaces as well as ink traps at cross-sections of some elements constituting the characters. The PostScript and OpenType family covers Latin, East-European languages, Cyrillic and Vietnamese. Iwona covers all of these too and is Nowacki's alternative to Kurier. Both sans font families have many useful mathematical symbols as well.
In 2006, Nowacki and Jackowski published free extensions of the Ghostscript fonts in their TeX Gyre Project: Adventor, Bonum, Cursor, Heros, Pagella, Termes, Schola, Chorus.
In 2008, two styles of Cyklop were published. This was a generalization and extension of a historical type.
He writes: The Cyclop typeface was designed in the 1920s at the workshop of Warsaw type foundry "Odlewnia Czcionek J. Idzkowski i S-ka". This sans serif typeface has a highly modulated stroke so it has high typographic contrast. The vertical stems are much heavier then horizontal ones. Most characters have thin rectangles as additional counters giving the unique shape of the characters. The lead types of Cyclop typeface were produced in slanted variant at sizes 8-48 pt. It was heavily used for heads in newspapers and accidents prints. Typesetters used Cyclop in the inter-war period, during the occupation in the w underground press. The typeface was used until the beginnings of the offset print and computer typesetting era. Nowadays it is hard to find the metal types of this typeface.

Polish type designer who, for her diploma thesis in typeface design at the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts under the supervision of Roman Tomaszewski, created Kurier (1975). In 2005, Janusz Marian Nowacki digitized the Kurier family, and added an alternative family, Iwona. Kurier was intended for Linotype typesetting of newspapers and similar periodicals. The design goals included resistance to technological processes destructive to the letter shapes. As a result, amongst others, the typeface distinguishes itself through intra- and extra-letter white spaces as well as ink traps at cross-sections of some elements constituting the characters. The PostScript and OpenType family covers Latin, East-European languages, Cyrillic and Vietnamese. Also, both sans families cover the most frequently used mathematical symbols. All type families are freely available from the CTAN archive. Alternate URL.

Vietnamese graphic and type designer who is Professor of Typography at the Hanoi Architectural University, Vietnam, since 2011. He studied at ESAD in Amiens, France. His graduation project at ESAD was a Latin / Vietnamese typeface family called Cadao. Specially designed for Vietnamese, it has a roman, an italic and a sans style. This typeface took two years of work. He writes: This is, in my opinion, the first typeface family which is seriously designed for the Vietnamese language requirements. All other existing fonts for use in Vietnamese were simply solutions to adaptation needs. There are of course some good designs, for example the works of R. Slimbach: Garamond Premier Pro, Myriad Pro, Minion Pro. Nevertheless, these fonts can not be considered as a perfect solution for the Vietnamese language. [Google] [More] ⦿
