* Package name    : ttf-ocr-a
  Version         : 1.0

  Description     : ANSI font readable by the computers of the 1960s
 The OCR-A font was developed by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI)
to be readable by the computers of the 1960s.  The OCR-A font is still used
commercially in payment advice forms so that a lockbox company can determine
the account number and amount owed on a bill when processing a payment.
A site license for the OCR-A font is very expensive, so I undertook to create
a free font.  I started with the MetaFont definitions, used FontForge and potrace
to construct a TrueType font, then assigned each glyph a Unicode code point.
I visually compared the resulting character shapes with ANSI X3.17-1977.

I will figure a better long description when actually packaging the font,
feel free to read the rest of the ReadMe.txt at the homepage or at
