What font is this? TuringMini.ttf

Here I am looking up phonetic fonts and I come across <a href="http://coq.no/widget/oxford-english/pronunciation/en">this page</a>. OK, cool, lets have a look at the source.

@font-face { font-family: "Turing"; src: url(TuringMini.ttf) }
@font-face { font-family: "Turing"; font-style: italic; src: url(TuringI.ttf) }

TuringMini, sounds good. Search on gooble. Nothing. Try all my gooble-fu. Only dead ends, and some Canadian deadware called Turing that is some kind of programming environment.
What about the PDF? Let’s check that.

Yep, Acrobat thinks it’s called “Turing” as well. But where does it come from.
Eventually more goobling found a “turing.ttf”. I grabbed that. Doing a get info on it, it says that one is Frutiger_Light_Tuca Light which also doesn't exist on the web until now. It also looks nothing like the Turing
on the web page & PDF so that must be a red herring.

Anyone else heard of it? Custom made perhaps?

  1. You could have asked…

    The font is a subset of Gentium with a few custom-made phonetic characters added.
