I'm looking for a font with deliberately ambiguous Latin characters.

i.e. where symbols like O0, 8B, Il1, 5S, 2Z, 6b, 9g, are either identical or visually indistinct.

Certain fonts like Arial have some degree of ambiguity - but I can't find a font which is specifically designed to have as many homographs as possible.

  • Architect's Daughter
  • Bauhaus 93 Regular
  • CityBlueprint Regular

The best I found was Architect's Daughter from Google Fonts:
