How to automatically create lighter version of an existing typeface?

One of my design student wants to generate a lighter version of a typeface so that he can get more open space in counters to address his design issue. I've recommended him to explore Fontographer. Is there any other software which can do this job automatically since he is a graphic design student and can not draw typeface from scratch.

Does it have to be perfect? The easy way is to make outlines in Illustrator/InDesign of the same color as the background and kern it tighter.
