identify font by file name (*.TTF)

davidbe's picture

Hi I have been given a chunk of fonts (see file attachment to see what fonts i have already identified), i have identified about half on the list below but i cannot find any website or source which can tell me what the font is from its file name.

Reason being we need to identify which are free (or installed with a package i.e windows/office etc) and which people on the network have installed and we need pay for or remove.

Any clues guys ?

For such a task, I use otfinfo which comes installed with TeX Live (available free for Windows, Linux and the Mac).

I simply call otfinfo -i fontname in a terminal window (or I use a script for batch processing).

Here it a trace with CAMBRIAZ.TTF

% otfinfo -i CAMBRIAZ.TTF
Family: Cambria
Subfamily: Bold Italic
Full name: Cambria Bold Italic
PostScript name: Cambria-BoldItalic
Version: Version 1.01
Unique ID: Microsoft: Cambria Bold Italic: 2005
Description: Cambria has been designed for on-screen reading and to look good when printed at small sizes. It has very even spacing and proportions. Diagonal and vertical hairlines and serifs are relatively strong, while horizontal serifs are small and intend to emphasize stroke endings rather than stand out themselves. This principle is most noticeable in the italics where the lowercase characters are subdued in style to be at their best as elements of word-images. When Cambria is used for captions at sizes over 20 point, the inter-character spacing should be slightly reduced for best results. The design isn't just intended for business documents: The regular weight has been extended with a large set of math and science symbols. The Greek and Cyrillic has been designed under close supervision of an international team of experts, who aimed to set a historical new standard in multi-script type design.
