Most Japanese people feel happy to receive a handwritten message, but they often have resistance to writing a message by hand. One of the reasons for this is that they are shy about showing their handwriting to others. In this study, we consider a technique that fuses handwriting with typeface in order to reduce the resistance to handwriting and improve the impression of the message. Experimental results demonstrate the visibility and readability of the considered fusion technique and show that the resistance to sending handwritten messages fused with typeface can be decreased.
