Easily Test Web Fonts


Typecast is a browser-based service that lets you test-drive over 23,000 fonts from various Web font services, including Typekit and fonts.com, in your active Web layout.

Creating and viewing Web pairs and using specialized functions built into the fonts is as easy as picking these options from the menu. The whole process is handled by CSS, so the changes are made instantly, and you can see how those changes affect your entire page.
