Pilothandwriting Creates a Custom Font From Your Handwriting, Whether or Not It’S Legible

Some say that doctors have the most atrocious writing. I think that anyone who has to write day-in and day-out will try and optimize their hand strokes to the bare minimum, which is what a lot of doctors do, with their squiggly writing. No matter what your writing looks like, you can turn it into a font using a free website from Pilot.

Pilothandwriting is an online service that will turn your handwriting into a font. You first have to print out a template, write out all the letters in the alphabet, then Pilothandwriting will use your webcam to digitize your handwriting. You can adjust the letters with the font editor and use it to write emails.

It’s all very cool, however there’s one big problem: at this point, you can’t download your custom font and use it on your computer, you have to use it on their website. This seems strange, since you’re basically putting a lot of effort into creating a font that you can’t use anywhere but on Pilot’s site or in an email.

If you’d rather have a font you can use in your own apps, there’s an older service out ther called Your Fonts. Although Your Fonts is a little harder to use, at least you can download the fonts you create.
