Notes from Fontsquirrel about the heritage of this font:
VT323 Regular | 587 Glyphs
This font was created from the glyphs of the DEC VT320 text terminal, which I used in college, and for which I have retained an unaccountable nostalgia.
I used a variety of tools, including Gimp, Python/PIL, and of course, FontForge. The VT320 glyphs were designed with a nonrectangular pixel aspect ratio to fit the way the terminal scanned the CRT, so for this VT323 variation I had Python munge the locations and attempt to emulate the way the electron beam actually illuminated the phosphor and smeared the pixels horizontally on the terminal’s CRT, so it looks more like what the actual glyph looked like on the screen. Python then drew the proper pixels into a 1:1 pixel grid as a monochrome PNG, which FontForge auto scanned into outlines.
I have attempted to support most of the glyphs available on the VT320, but that is a limited set, to begin with, so please don’t be disappointed that I haven’t supported Esperanto or Riograndenser Hunsrückisch or whatever.
