The Scriptalizer is unique handwriting font enhancement software, used in conjunction with the Premium 'Ultra' handwriting font service, that adds an additional level of realism to handwriting fonts.
The Scriptalizer is available in three different formats:
A free-to-use web based version of the software, suitable for most types of users, that allows the user to manually convert text (either by typing into the program or copy and pasting). The resulting output can then be copied into any application that uses TrueType Fonts. This page introduces this version of the software.
Price: £49.95 ($
*) per year (annual payment).
The Scriptalizer™ API webservice provides a standard interface, defined by WSDL, to allow licensed 3rd parties to access Scriptalizer™ functionality. The API returns a Scriptalized text string.

Price: £299.95 ($
*) one-off payment.
The application embeddable DLL version of the software, allows the user to embed the Scriptalizer™ logic within their own application, generating "handwritten" output programmatically. This version of the Scriptalizer™ is also COM-compatible and can be invoked in MS Office applications and others that support COM interoperability.
More Information and Purchase.
The remainder of this page introduces the web based version of the Scriptalizer™. It is recommended that potential users of the API and DLL versions also acquaint themselves with this version to help them understand how the software functions.
If you want to use the output in a word processor (such as Microsoft® Word®), here's what you need to do:
The video below explains the theory of how the Scriptalizer™ software works, and gives a tour of the software interface.
The Scriptalizer™ Software is used with the Premium 'Ultra' handwriting font service. The service embeds over 100 additional characters in the font, which are accessed and replaced by the software. The software replaces the 'standard' characters with alternatives on a semi-random basis. These replacements include:
This adds another level of naturalness to your handwriting font.
The Premium 'Ultra' service is therefore associated with unique aspects of your handwriting style. This gives the fonts the most realistic and natural look you could imagine!
The Scriptalizer™ can optionally add occasional 'error' characters* as if you'd had a slip of the pen and crossed it out. You have the option to ask the Scriptalizer™ to add these 'mistakes' at a frequency you choose (from none to 1 in 5,000 up to 5-letter words). The Scriptalizer™ will take the next word when it is time to create a 'mistake', randomly change one letter, and then cross it out.
* Error characters are not available in all pre-made Premium 'Ultra' fonts or with the Microsoft® Word® Plugin.
The fonts are of an exceptionally high quality, because the connections of each letter to the next have individually been worked with to produce a truly accurate reproduction of the original handwriting.
The Premium 'Ultra' Service is required to get the best results for cursive (joined up) handwriting, but also significantly improves the realism of printed handwriting styles.
If you haven't purchase a custom-made Premium 'Ultra' font yet you can still try the Scriptalizer™ and see how it works using the 'Try The Scriptalizer™' button below. As a non-registered customer there is access to over 40 pre-made Premium 'Ultra' fonts.
If you subsequently want use any of the pre-made Premium 'Ultra' fonts in a word processor for example, either for personal or commercial use, there is the option to purchase the fonts available at a very reasonable price.
Registered customers who have had their own handwriting converted into a Premium 'Ultra' font will receive a unique login and password, which will allow them access to their own font(s).
The Scriptalizer™ Software is a web based application that only requires a modern web browser and internet connection to use.
Any computer capable of running the following web browsers:
Internet Explorer version 9.0+, Chrome version 4.0+, Firefox version 3.5+, Safari version 3.1+, Opera version 10.0+
The output from the Scriptalizer™ can be copied and pasted into any application that uses TrueType fonts*.
* Note: The output from the Scriptalizer™ is not compatible with Word Perfect due to the use of special characters that interfere with formatting controls.
This software is designed to work exclusively with Premium 'Ultra' Service Fonts created by Quantum Enterprises. It is not compatible with any other handwriting font services. (However, a Premium 'Ultra' Font is entirely usable as a high quality handwriting font on its own, without the use of the Scriptalizer™ software).
By using this software, you are agreeing to the Software License Agreement.
(If you don't have your own Premium 'Ultra' font yet you can still try a wide range of examples to see how the Scriptalizer™ works).
(If you don't have your own custom-made Premium 'Ultra' font you can choose from a wide selection of pre-made fonts to see how the Scriptalizer™ works).
