Handwriting standards are created to help kids learn to write with fluency and style. As they develop as hand writers, they move from single letters standing by themselves to simple joins and finally to speed loops. This dynamic means that it is impossible to faithfully model handwriting through fonts by simply turning each letter into a character and joining them in a mechanical way in a computer font. Handwriting guides are designed to be easy to write not easy to use on a computer. To reproduce the state-defined handwriting styles in a font is a complex task requiring a solution that adapts to context. Exactly what Aussie School Fonts Plus has done!
