In order to produce educational material, you need special fonts , e.g. with or without “guidelines”, “outlined” (with and without arrows) and “dotted” fonts:
With these fonts worksheets can be prepared on which the children can “track” the new letters. As is often the case, computer font families of educational typefaces lack some or all of these fonts. It is, therefore, difficult or not possible at all, to prepare individual, personalized educational material or software.
Schools in Europe use – apart from block letters – formal and casual cursives . Formal cursives, whereby the individual letters are “joined”, and casual cursives, i.e. a combination of joins and pen lifts, have both advantages and disadvantages. An educational typeface should have both options. Thus we need a font superfamily in which all fonts are matched up so that all combinations are possible without prior typographic knowledge.
