FontGear (formerly Morrison SoftDesign) has released FontGenius 1.0
for Mac OS X. It’s a font identification utility that costs US$39.99
for a single-user license. A demo version is available for download
at the FontGear web site (http://www.FontGear.net).
FontGenius examines pictures and identifies typefaces of any text
within a picture. Using advanced recognition technology, FontGenius
will produce a list of likely fonts that match selected characters
within an image, and will generate character previews of the matched
FontGenius can match both installed fonts and uninstalled fonts using
a built-in font profile database. An Internet search can also be
performed on the list of results to locate, purchase, and/or download
matched fonts. FontGenius requires Mac OS 10.3 or higher and runs on
both PowerPC and Intel Macs.
