Just did a UK Google search for "handwriting fonts" and came up with 2650 results, some free. I suggest you try the same search.

Signet Roundhand is quite nice if a little fancy. BrodyD is a compact upright font. Staccato222 BT is a rather jazzy 60s style. CommercialScript BT & Brush455 BT are commonly available and quite plain. My preference is Bradley Hand ITC, which is not continuous, but is rather nice.

Thanks for your font request.

I have just reinstalled XP and had forgotten to add my extra fonts to the default ones.

These are the ones I can recommend.

Edwardian Sript ITC

French Script MT


Viner Hand ITC


Vivaldi Italic

Are they Freeware or not? Thanks David

With all fonts, handwriting ones included, is that a particular letter will always look the same so that in a passage of text, it soon becomes obvious that the font is not what is makes itself out to be and looks exactly what it is - machine generated lettering imitating handwritten text. Personally I find that irritating and would much rather read a more conventional typeface.

Mine were free David, though you will need to spend some time searching for them.

Most of the fonts mentioned are instaled with Word ( the older versions have more than the later ones). Go to the fonts folder and see what you have.
