How can I convert a bitmap fonts (.fon) into TTF or OTF fonts?

I don't need any of the features in vector fonts such as ClearType; I just want my bitmap font simply transformed into TTF or OTF format.

You can’t. TTF and OTF are vector formats — such things need to be done by hand. – kinokijuf Apr 13 '14 at 14:16

Most typography software can do font format conversion. TransType and KGroup PixelFont are example of commercial applications. If you want free solutions, you can use FontForge + Autotrace (FontForge needs Autotrace for tracing).
