This font looks close enough to real handwriting
But it is not as legible as I would like it to be.
Fix the kerning tables and redraw the letters to have a single x-height so that you get better word shapes.
This font is called Handwriting Dakota.
It has already been designed by someone else.
I am only a designer. I like it, but its hard to read.
I was wondering if you had any suggestions on a more legible font.
Ohhh. I use Comicrazy, for handwriting. That’s probably my inner nerd showing through.
You can try Olga - it's close enough (but not slanted)

Times or Helvetica.
Psachyah, do you have a PC with Vista? There's a new handwriting face included there that uses a lot of contextual alternates; looks handwritten and is very legible: Segoe Script.
