File extension ttf is commonly used for TrueType fonts.

TrueType (TTF) font format is an outline font standard originally developed by Apple Computer in the late 1980s as a competitor to Adobe's Type 1 fonts used in PostScript.

The primary strength of TrueType (TTF format) was originally that it offered font developers a high degree of control over precisely how their fonts are displayed, right down to particular pixels, at various font heights. (With widely varying rendering technologies in use today, pixel-level control is no longer certain.)

A computer font (or font) is a file format used to store a set of glyphs, characters, or symbols such as dingbats.

The ttf files can be used on both Apple Mac and Microsoft Windows operating systems.
