    How to get embedded font to render in e-reader?

    erica59044543 Level 1

      I’ve embedded a TT font for epub export, but the font characters fail to render in both ADE and Calibre. The font renders fine in desktop applications, including ID and Word.

       

      According to this Lynda video, OT and TT fonts are embeddable using ID: https://www.lynda.com/InDesign-tutorials/Using-free-Typekit-fonts/374187/415033-4.html

       

      On the other hand, IDPF states that OT and WOFF are supported, with no mention of TT, but I’m unable to figure out how to embed the WOFF font via the ID interface. http://www.idpf.org/epub/31/spec/epub-overview.html#sec-fonts

       

      I’ve exhausted the search engine, but  found nothing that seems on point.

       

      Any suggestions?

       

      Thank you.
