Inu Cypher

I'm fascinated by syllabaries, and I like the symbols of the Inuktitut & Cree Syllabariums (they are nearly identical) (and technically they are abugidas). I also like the idea of saying things on the internet using these symbols as a cypher. Before I made this tool I would just use random symbols as nonsense; now I can use the syllabarium as an English cypher.

I mean no disrespect to the Inuit, Cree, or other nations that use this syllabarium for their written language. My purpose is to use their symbols to render words in a different language, just as Latin alphabet is used by the Japanese to write their Romanji script.

Which abugidas/cypher to use:

Cree to English phonemes:

(note1: Canadian aboriginal writing does not distinguish between voiced and unvoiced consonants, so this transcription may sound odd to an English speaker)
(note2: 'c' is pronounced like the English consonant blend 'ch')
