I'm looking to typeset some Elvish characters, but from an English to Tengwar transcription.

I've found this GitHub repo which has made installing all the necessary bits and pieces nice and easy, after chasing a few threads/links on here.

However, I need a script to convert between English and the actual Tengwar characters to by typeset. The repo alludes to one, but the link is defunct for me. This is probably a long shot, but does anyone have a suitable substitute that works with the tengwarscript package, or a way of getting hold of a copy of that script?

  • the tex package isn't the issue, it was the transcriber script I was after. I'm going to close this myself anyway as I managed to find an archived version no sooner than posting it.
