I attached a modified version of the typescript file where I added calligraphic and handwriting, blackletter is missing because there is no font command for the style.

\setupbodyfont[lucidanova]

\define[1]\LucidaTest
  {\begingroup
   #1\tf Regular \it Italic \sl Slanted \bf Bold \bi BoldItalic \bs BoldSlanted \tf fi fl VA \par
   \endgroup}

\starttext
\LucidaTest\rm
\LucidaTest\ss
\LucidaTest\tt
\LucidaTest\hw
\LucidaTest\cg
\stoptext
