Very nice.

The font includes support for the Esperanto language. Excellent.

Esperanto is included in the Scanahand template "Basic and Extended Characters".

(...But not in FontCreator's standard character set, as I recall? To my previous font https://www.1001fonts.com/jann-script-font.html which was made [only] in FontCreator, I added Esperanto alphabet in purposely. No, I don't speak Esparanto, but I like the idea of a common world language. However, as the theme for that font was about Nordic main and minority languages with a recognized status, I didn't mention Esperanto in the description.)

> No, I don't speak Esparanto, but I like the idea of a common world language.

Actually Esperanto is intended as a second, auxiliary, language for everyone, not to replace existing languages.

Your specimen text shows some features of the language.

The -as ending of parolas means that it is the present tense of a verb.

Compare

Mi ne parolas

with the French

Je ne parle pas

The -on ending of Esperanton means that it is a single noun in the direct object case.

kaj means and, pronounced like the first part of the English word kayak.

The -o ending of teksto means that it is a singluar noun. As it is not preceding by a preposition then it is the subject of the phrase.

The -ita ending of tradukita means that it is a passive past participle.

The -e ending of aŭtomate means that it is an adverb.
