True type fonts were originally developed by the Apple Computer Company but they are now used by Microsoft as well. The original code name was Bass because the fonts were scalable just like scaling a fish. This type font was also designed to be extendible which would make it easy to improve on the technology. They are built to allow hinting which gives the type designer the ability to fine tune the appearance on the screen.
True type fonts also have what is known as a rasterizer which is a piece of software which is built into the Windows and Mac operating systems. This component helps to display the fonts onto the computer screen. It is also necessary for the printing and displaying fonts on the computer system. New features are font smoothing, which also means grayscale rasterization, which will further improve on screen images.
If you are in a corporate environment, true type fonts may be exactly what you need since Windows is usually the operating system of choice and Windows comes loaded with true type fonts and you don’t need additional software to run them.
In times past, true type fonts were considered to be inferior but today that is no longer true. True type fonts are probably the most common type of font being used on computers these days. Most of the fonts on Cool Fonts are true type fonts and unless you have a very unusual computer operating system the true type font will work extremely well for you.
