MCP40 "hand written" font

Post by Dbug » Mon Jul 11, 2016 11:23 am

Hi,

back in the days I remember there was a program that you could use to write text as if it was hand written.
I don't remember if it was some commercial tape, or some type-in program, does anyone remember and knows where I can find it?

Thanks :)

I seem to recall someone sent a letter to a French magazine using this font (maybe called "écriture stylée") to illustrate its use. But I can't recall exactly which, it was Théoric or Micr'Oric.
(EDIT: I meant the letter was illustrating an article a few months before... So you should take a look in these magazines ;) )

I remember it was a type-in, maybe from "Oric Owner" magazine .. if anyone has those, it'd be worth a peek, there is one issue dedicated to the printer .. (#9)

Théoric #25, november 1986, pages 14-18 "Écriture stylée sur MCP 40".

Well done!
And the result can be seen in Théoric 31, page 6.

I think I saw some printouts using the fonts that were on early CEO disks. (??)
