What languages and fonts would you like to see?

In Progress
  •  Could you please add Georgian Fonts?

  • i  would need these fonts:

     HELVETICA NEUE, 45 Light


    HELVETICA NEUE, 55 Regular

    HELVETICA NEUE, 6Medium 

  • Amatic SC Please

  • Please add the Ethiopic language "Amharic". 

  • Please add the Ubuntu and Lora font families

  • Thai font please. Pridi or Mitr in google fonts both good

  • How do I go about uploaded the font LATO? It is a Google font but I can't work out how to do it - please help!

  • Please read the very first post in this topic.

    The new text character format introduced in version 3.6 runs on the Google fonts system, meaning that you will not be able to import standard fonts yourself.

    This topic is for font requests, as VideoScribe is looking at adding more fonts in the future. 

  • I am finding this impossible - I want to import Lato which is a google font. Please can you provide a step by step guide to do this? There is no way to import fonts - even though above you say it is possible.

  • I have not said it is possible- " you will not be able to import standard fonts yourself"

    This forum is for font requests. You cannot import new fonts into VideoScribe. 

    As the first post in this topic states:

    There have been a few common questions on this post so I thought I would add some FAQs to the initial post for all to see.

    Why can't you add your own fonts anymore? 
    There were a number of issues with fonts in v2-v3.5 which customers had been wanting to see improvements too for quite a while. The main ones were:
    • Support More languages (we've added Arabic, Chinese Simplified, Japanese & Korean so far)
    • Quality of the text (imported fonts were not HD and could be very fuzzy when zoomed in)
    • Kerning issues
    • Some fonts with longer tails on y's and j's would get cut off and look poor
    To fix all these issues we had to add some boundaries to the fonts we were going to deal with in order to be able truly test each font and know that what you see is what you get when it comes to all those factors. This why we switched to GoogleFonts and why the initial deployment had 60 of their fonts available, there are plans to add more Google fonts and more languages over time. I understand some customers will not like this change but this is very much about providing a top quality finished video and a huge step forward in that regard.

    What fonts support my language? 
    We have a handy help page which shows all the fonts and which languages - Supported languages and fonts and this will be updated as and when new fonts/languages are added. We also have a blog post on the inital 60 fonts that shows examples of the options for the new languages - Choosing the best fonts for our supported languages

    If a new language or font is requested, how long does it take to get it? 
    The purpose of this forum is to help us gauge which languages and fonts will be popular. We have our own data on this such as where our customers are from or looking through the Google options to see styles that are not represented well in the original 60. So requesting a font or language here does not mean it will be in VideoScribe, it just means we will consider it when we are deciding what to add next. As the answer to the first FAQ here shows adding a new font, and especially a new language take a fair bit of time, effort and testing so you are not going to see these turned around quickly. We will be looking to add more and more over time but these are likely to be in small batches periodically instead of a regular steady stream. 

    How can I increase the chances of my request being chosen? 
    Details! If you just provide a font name we'll still consider it but understanding why you would like it will allow us to see the request through your eyes a lot more and fully understand your need and if it can apply to other people too. 

  • Thank you - I must have miss read. Please can you add Lato? It is my corporate font and I want to use it in my work. https://fonts.google.com/specimen/Lato#standard-styles Thank you
  •  Can you please add Segoe print back into the list of fonts, as well as Basic? I have years of work using those 2 fonts so I'd truly appreciate it!!

  •  Hello,

    Could you please add "Cambria maths".


  •  Hello,

    Could you please add "Cambria maths".

    This will provide a satisfactory font for writing mathematical formulas. This is the font used by the word equation editor.

    Thank you!
