How to use OTF fonts : Free Font Download

What is OTF font?

A font saved in the OpenType format, created by Adobe and Microsoft, is known as an OTF file. Aspects of the TrueType (.TTF) and PostScript (.PS) font formats are combined in the OpenType format. Because OTF fonts are entirely scalable, you can resize their characters without sacrificing quality.

Microsoft started working on a TrueType font format rival in the 1990s. Microsoft created the OpenType typeface, or OTF, format in cooperation with Adobe. While the TrueType format and the OpenType format are similar, the OpenType format has extra data structures that control the appearance and behavior of fonts.

The OpenType format evolved into an open font standard in the early 2000s. As a result, OTF fonts can now be installed on the majority of computer systems.
