High-Logic Introduces Scanahand 1.0 for Windows

De Bilt, Utrecht April 23, 2008 -- High-Logic has released Scanahand, a Windows program that makes it easy for each member of the family to create custom, hand-written fonts. Scanahand lets you quickly create a font, install it in Windows in seconds, and use it in Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and every Windows program that you own. You can type notes and cards in your favorite word processing software, and print them in your own handwriting.

It's easy and fun to create a new font. Simply print a copy of Scanahand's blank template, draw all of the characters using a black marker or felt-tip pen, and scan your drawing. Scanahand quickly builds and installs your font.

You can create a new font whenever the muse inspires you. Each family member can create fonts to reflect their moods and personalities. Creating fonts in your grandparents' handwriting will encourage them to write more often. Scanahand lets you save time writing cards for the holidays, while adding a personal touch.

Scanahand lets you digitize your signature, and use it in any Windows program. You can turn icons, company logos, or any line art into font characters. If you have a graphics program installed on your computer, it's easy to open your hand-written template, and add artistic flair to each of your font characters. You can even load your fonts onto Macintosh computers.

Whether you're a parent who wants each member of the family to have their own personalized handwriting fonts, a teacher who wants to track how your students' writing skills have progressed through the year, a home user who wants to create custom fonts for each of the holidays, or a business person who wants to add a personal touch to corporate correspondence, Scanahand has the tools that you need.
