SchoolFonts Keyboard - a custom keyboard that displays both lowercase and uppercase letters, as well as a simplified set of numbers and special characters in the correct school fonts. Keyboard Display Fonts include, D'Nealian, Zaner Bloser, NSW Foundation, South Africa Junior, UK Beginner, HWT Beginners, Getty-Dubay Basic and Helvetica.
• NOTE : This keyboard app does not affect the font of characters displayed in the app using this keyboard - that is entirely up to that app. The keyboard app does not produce the font in order to be printed. Fonts display on the keyboard keys only. Don't forget to check out our 'School Fonts To Install' app that allows you to install the correct school fonts into your system fonts.
