What languages and fonts would you like to see?

With the arrival of v3.6 of VideoScribe, we have a whole new text and font system with more supported languages than ever before and inbuilt Google fonts... Find out more about this here.

This is just the start and we are keen to add to the range of fonts and languages available. We would love input on this from Scribers all over the world so please comment below with your suggestions and the more detail you can provide on why the font or language you need would be useful, the better! If you can include a link to the font from as well that will make sure there is no confusion

Over to you... 

Edit 21/10/2020...

There have been a few common questions on this post so I thought I would add some FAQs to the initial post for all to see.

Why can't you add your own fonts anymore? 
There were a number of issues with fonts in v2-v3.5 which customers had been wanting to see improvements too for quite a while. The main ones were:
• Support More languages (we've added Arabic, Chinese Simplified, Japanese & Korean so far)
• Quality of the text (imported fonts were not HD and could be very fuzzy when zoomed in)
• Kerning issues
• Some fonts with longer tails on y's and j's would get cut off and look poor
To fix all these issues we had to add some boundaries to the fonts we were going to deal with in order to be able truly test each font and know that what you see is what you get when it comes to all those factors. This why we switched to GoogleFonts and why the initial deployment had 60 of their fonts available, there are plans to add more Google fonts and more languages over time. I understand some customers will not like this change but this is very much about providing a top quality finished video and a huge step forward in that regard.

What fonts support my language? 
We have a handy help page which shows all the fonts and which languages - Supported languages and fonts and this will be updated as and when new fonts/languages are added. We also have a blog post on the inital 60 fonts that shows examples of the options for the new languages - Choosing the best fonts for our supported languages

If a new language or font is requested, how long does it take to get it? 
The purpose of this forum is to help us gauge which languages and fonts will be popular. We have our own data on this such as where our customers are from or looking through the Google options to see styles that are not represented well in the original 60. So requesting a font or language here does not mean it will be in VideoScribe, it just means we will consider it when we are deciding what to add next. As the answer to the first FAQ here shows adding a new font, and especially a new language take a fair bit of time, effort and testing so you are not going to see these turned around quickly. We will be looking to add more and more over time but these are likely to be in small batches periodically instead of a regular steady stream. 

How can I increase the chances of my request being chosen? 
Details! If you just provide a font name we'll still consider it but understanding why you would like it will allow us to see the request through your eyes a lot more and fully understand your need and if it can apply to other people too.

Hi Barry, 

Please add the following font: This will make the lives of many people from my region a lot easy. Thank you in advance!.



Can you please add Geez Font to your system? There are millions of Eritreans and Ethiopians who use the alphabet. Thanks.

Hey Roble, Geez is not a Google font so not something we can add (

We would also need to know specifically which languages you would like to add as well as the font will not work without the language being added to support as well

You can filter that Google list by language so take a look and then make a new request for the language(s) you need and a font that supports them.

Please Add Urdu Language,  I'm Using Your Software Since October 2020 But I 've to work much harder to produce urdu font for Videoscribe to complete my work,

Now i've subscribed Videoscribe for 1 Year, I do not want to go anyother software, because i am attached with it, i request you to please add Urdu Font, In this way you 'll get Subscriptions from India, and Pakistan, There are over 100 million native speakers of Urdu in India and Pakistan together, 

The possibility to use own fonts is crucial to any professional producer.  I use videoscribe to make films for my company, based on a corporate font. The limitation on googel fonts is not acceptable for me.

Hi Barry!

could you please add the Persian language?

thanx a lot.

Cartwheel. I know it isn't a Google font, but it is one of the best "clean" looking fonts with a handwritten feel. And it is the font I have used for the past 12 years. I have nearly 70 videos that feature this, and when I go back to make revisions or a follow up video for a client, I'm pretty screwed. I can't change the color or some other attributes. Open to other ideas to work around, but I'm extremely hamstrung because of this change.

You mention downloading the prior version to 3.6 in order to use the older fonts. But it is near impossible to find those download pages. Can you please direct me to what I assume would be a 3.5 version download? It is the only way I can make revisions to a 2 year old video for a client without burning lots of time on changed or uneditable fonts in the latest version.

Thank you!

Karl Wimer

Hey Karl, v3.5.2 is not available on the website for general download anymore. It's over 2 years old and will have some serious problems on the latest versions of some operating systems. If you desperately need it you can raise a ticket and let us know which OS you are running. We can then let you know if it'll work and what bugs it will have. If you still want it, then we'll send you a link.

Hello, could you please add Hurme Geometric Sans 4 font ?
