I’m trying to create a braille font to be ADA compliant. I cannot seem to establish a clear and consistent rectangle around the braille dot-set so that the spacing is exactly equal regardless of there being one column of dots or two. Without the consistent rectangle defining the space that the dot-set is in there is no way to determine if any dot(s) occupying only one column is on the left or the right column.
So, for example: The letter “A” is a single dot in the upper left corner in a 2x3 grid, and the remaining 5 dots are non-existant but their spacing held. No matter what I do, Fontself sets the left and right spacing relative to that one dot centered. I cannot have that. It has to be leftish within a monospaced rectangle consistent for all characters.
How do I ensure consistent glyph width while still maintaining the void dot areas? There can be no vectors in those areas.
