    handwriting font

    I just finished finished this book on Russian script:
    http://www.amazon.com/Teach-Yourself.../dp/0071419861
    So I've studied the handwritten characters too, and find some of them a little hard to remember. I want to make an Anki

    (flashcard) deck to help me remember. Can you suggest a good font to turn my Russian vocabulary list into cursive?

    Re: handwriting font

    Ok, I found several. For example:
    http://www.searchfreefonts.com/free/mac ... tistic.htm
    http://www.angelfire.com/pop/top4/fonts/arbat.ttf
    Unfortunately, because I'm a beginner, I have accent marks in my vocabulary, and the new font converts them into little boxes. Oh well, I suppose there's no way around that...

    Re: handwriting font

    The fonts from the links are more like elegant calligraphy fonts.

    If you just want to learn regular Cyrillic handwriting, then the font to get is called "propisi".

    That looks exactly like it came out of a handwriting book for children.

    Google for that, and torrent.

    This is what it looks like:

    There is one point to note: While in the PC font the symbol shape is the same independently of the symbol position within the word. In real handwritten symbols differs with the position (begin, middle and end of the word). The difference is in connecting strokes. In the begin of a word there is no a preceding connecting stroke (like "ф" in "французских"). As well as in the end of a word there is no a posterior connecting stroke (like "ь" in "Съешь", "б" in "Бб", "в" in "Вв").
    So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish

    Personally I use underline for stress in Anki.

    Me too... It is almost impossible to get an accent onto a Cyrillic letter. I would NOT waste my time trying that. Use underline/bold/another colour instead.
