That’s it? Looks like diacritics to me, combined with some typographic preferences and a changed collation sequence perhaps.

a/A with preferred typographic uppercase rendering akin Delta Δ
b/B
c/C
ɔ/Ɔ 0254/0186
d/D
e/E
i/I
j/J
g/G
h/H
i̵/I̵ +0335, with typographic preference for vertical serifs on the bar
i̯/I̯ +032F, or mandatory ai/AI digraph ligature, e.g. aͥ/Aͥ (+0365)
k/K
l/L
m/M
n/N
o/O
o̲/O̲ +0332
o⃒/O⃒ +20D2, or ø/Ø with typographic preference for vertical line
o⃓/O⃓ +20D3, or q/Q or mandatory ao/AO(?) digraph ligature
ƣ/Ƣ 01A3/01A2, or mandatory oi/OI digraph ligature, e.g. oͥ/Oͥ (+0365)
ŋ/Ŋ 014B/014A, or new letter Latin Capital Letter Reversed N
s/S
t/T
u/U
ū/Ū 016B/016A, or ū/Ū (+0304)
w/W
y/Y
/ not sure whether H-based, O-based or neither
x/X
z/Z or ƶ/Ƶ (01B6/01B5)
x̄/X̄ +0304

In conclusion, most of this should probably be handled at the (smart) font level.
