FontFilter: Convert Postscript Type 1 font to TrueType for free?
posted by CaptApollo to Computers & Internet (9 answers total)
I own an expensive Type 1 font (Gotham
), but need a TrueType version. Is there a way to convert it for free, or will I need to purchase TransType
I am a web developer and will be using Stewart Rosenberger's fantastic Dynamic Text Replacement
technique to allow a Content Mananagment System to control graphical headlines--while retaining SEO value and screenreader-friendliness: it's a great idea. The designer for the project has designed the layout (and corporate ID) to use Gotham, and the client has purchased it as postscript, but the php-driven script that generates the graphics requires a TrueType font.
I don't have the $200 to repurchase the font in the proper format, and the client understandably doesn't want to spend addtional money on the font he already owns. Any ideas?
