ABOUT







John Sauter

Developer of a free OCR-A package (originally designed by an ANSI committee) consisting of metafonts and type 1 faces found here. He used the OCR-A metafont files of Tor Lillqvist and Richard B. Wales to make large bitmaps, which were use in potrace to make outline traces. FontForge was used to create the fonts. His font exactly matches the X3.17-1977 document of the American National Standards Institute. I found some problems in the truetype file, so I used FontForge to generate OCRA in 2008 in Truetype, Opentype and type 1 formats, leaving the Sauter copyright intact inside the font.
