How can I create my own font from my handwriting in Windows?

Jonathan Mould January 18, 2011

I recently installed a font and noticed the file contained the sentance the quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog. If I write this on a piece of paper and scan it on to my computer, can I create my own font?

      I havn't created a font yet as i am very busy with exams but i did look at the links. Your fonts is no longer free unfortunately so you might want to update your review but i've printed out the My script font sheet and just need to scan it back in. I will hopefully have that done next week. thanks for the good recommendations
