Keyboard font

Can anyone tell me what font was used for the printing on the ZX Spectrum keyboard?

    Looks like Helvetica to me.

    Why do you want to know?

    You can download 3 different Speccy fonts for the PC/Mac/Miggy.
    One is the speccy on-screen font
    One is the keyboard font (complete with all the symbol shift/ext mode subtexts)
    The other is the font used for the SINCLAIR logo at the top left of your speccy.

    I found all 3 on a freeware font site (can't remember the URL). If you email me, I'll see if I can bung a copy your way.

    I think the site you mean is the fantastic ZX Spectrum Golden Years, at

    How I wish there was a site like this for all computers, so that you could
    get an idea of the best games for the MSX/Amstrad/BBC etc, that you
    never really saw except at school or at a mate's house.

    Anyway the link (not tried it) is at
