There is a wonderful keyboard mapping utility for Microsoft Windows called WinCompose, written by Sam Hocevar. Similar products are available for Linux and MacOS.
When used with the Bravura font and the definitions below, it will allow you to type Sagittal characters as easily-remembered key sequences. In this case the ASCII longhand. Just precede it with two presses of the right Alt key and follow it with a space if necessary. e.g. the 5-comma-up or pai symbol can be typed as this sequence:
<Alt> <Alt> / | <space>
Definitions could just as easily be set up to use the ASCII shorthand, the sagispeak name, or the ratio. And the ratio could generate a single symbol if terminated with a <space>, and generate multiple symbols (one per prime) if terminated with a right <Alt>. Also, definitions could be added for the . If anyone develops any such definitions please post them here to share.

Right-click on the WinCompose icon on the right of the task bar and choose Options, then click the Edit buton. This will open a text file for user-defined key sequences.
Copy and paste the following definitions at the end of the file. Close and save the file, then click the Reload and Close buttons.
You can then go to a word-processor or music notation software, choose the Bravura font, and type single-shaft Sagittal symbols to your heart's content.
