Color Script is a way of writing Portuguese based on colours and shapes devised by Carlos Carrion. It is also known as Portucolor. It is based on a simplified version of the Munsell color system. There are 10 basic colors (like the Munsell chroma + hue concept) for 19 IPA consonants which have their "values" (shades of gray) or "bright" in CV syllables marked in 6 steps for 9 IPA vowel sounds. There are also symbols for "isolated" consonants and "isolated vowels beyond the basic CV forms.
Todos os seres humanos nascem livres e iguais em dignidade e em direitos. Dotados de razão e de consciência, devem agir uns para com os outros em espírito de fraternidade.
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They
are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another
in a spirit of brotherhood.
(Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights)
