Where can I find a font with numbers, letters and symbols to use in a design of a calculator?


Question

I am looking for a font to use in a calculator. It needs to have alphabetic characters (a-z), and hopefully mathematics symbols like:

+ − x ÷ ( )

It's for using it in a calculator app design. Any recommendations?

Accepted Answer

If you are literally trying to make it look like a calculator, there are many fonts that emulate digital displays.

Since you are looking for all alphanumeric characters, a 7-segment display probably wouldn't be useful because there are too many shared glyphs.

Alternatively, you could use a Fourteen Segment Display font:

14 Seg Characters

Segment14 seems to meet your requirements, if that's the style you're looking for.

Another direction would be to mimic the display of a more modern calculator, such as a TI-83:

Search for '5x7 pixel font' to find similar fonts to this, Pixxel v2.2 looks very similar
