Ok, now this is a fun little utility!

Scanahand enables anyone with a scanner to turn their own handwriting into a fully-compatible TrueType font.

Use it in Word, PowerPoint, Adobe Acrobat, the Windows system, Excel, Notepad, Adobe Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro, Adobe Illustrator... literally any Windows application!

It's so simple. Just print out a font template page, write in the letters with a black magic marker, and scan the template straight into Scanahand. It will automatically convert your handwriting into a scalable, vector-based TrueType format and install your brand new font in Windows. That's all there is to it!

Best of all, Scanahand isn't restricted to scanned input. Power users and advanced hobbyists alike can use it along with their favorite graphic design or drawing software to create or modify each individual character and utilize Scanahand's quick conversion and installation.

Note: Scanahand fonts can be used on BOTH Windows and Macintosh computers!

marko ifebo Bonjour.
Ce logiciel permet-il de créer également les polices avec des caractères accentués ?

Good afternoon.
This software allows it to also create fonts with accented characters ?

Erwin Denissen Yes. Over 90 accented characters are available in the standard edition to cover most Western European languages. These and more are supported:
English, German, French, Dutch, Italian, Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, Spanish, Portuguese.

Petr I am interested in Scanahand Premium Edition. Can I buy this here on BitsDuJour?

Alternatively, what is the upgrade policy? Can I upgrade to Premium, getting credit for Standard?

Erwin Denissen The promo is for the standard edition only, but you can buy an upgrade to the premium edition for an additional $45.00.

Phred E The indications shown suggest that Scanahand doesn't generate cursive writing - what we know in kindergarten as 'running writing'.
To do that I expect you'd need samples of every letter-pair in a matrix that doesn't appear in your screenshot graphics.
Seeing that I don't write by forming separate letters, side by side - I write cursively - can you confirm my suspicions, please?

Erwin Denissen Sorry for my late reply, but you are right.
