For academic purposes, I need to print out some pages of characters with stroke orders shown. Which computer fonts (e.g. TrueType or OpenType) are available which show the stroke order of each character (e.g. by showing numbers near the beginning of each stroke)?
No fonts do, just sites with pictures or animations.
Instructions: Past the address in your browser bar, then write a character between "File:" and "-bw", like this "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:你-bw.png#file". It will show you the character's stroke order, not animated, but very clear.
This shows the stroke order but not the stroke direction.
I just started a project to make such a font. You can find it here: http://rtega.be/chmn/index.php?subpage=68
MDBG has stroke animations for all the characters, and highlights the radical, but I don't think you can print it out. That said, it's available online, for free, so it gets points for accessibility.
There is a website called 汉典. It is a dedicated Chinese character dictionary, and now has animated stroke order.
It is (almost) all Chinese though.
