It said "without software". Without is without. And it can not be done without software. Be it off-line or on-line.
Even when it wants to return to letterpress it will still need the CAM software for the cutting.

... I don't need a software actually, i can make fonts without software!
Or you are very clever or very stupid. I place my bet on the second option.
That is the Computer Modern Medium from the American Mathematical Society \050\051, with Reserved Font Name CMVTT10.

Abraham, you will be surprised how many fonts there are out there - including many professional fonts - that have no kerning pairs.
Before someone starts mumbling, this does of course not concern connected glyphs fonts such as handwriting and so.
When the advance widths are set smartly the need for kerning is minimal. It is all about how the eye perceives it. The distance between two characters with a vertical stem on both the left and right side, needs to be wider than the distance between two characters that are round.
Rule of thumb: when the distance between, let's say an l and an l = 80 then the distance between an o and an o is 40 and the distance between an l and an o is 60. These are example numbers only just to give an indication. The designer decides how wide or narrow the letter spacing should be.
Ergo the white space left and right for the l is 40 and the white space left and right of an o is 20. Result, the distance between l and o is 40 plus 20 is 60 and-so-on.
Once this rule of thumb applied only a small number of letter pairs need fine tuning, kerning. Think of Ta and so. There are who also apply kerning for capital letters where the distance between L and V (negative kerning) for example is different from L and I.
But kerning for capital letter pairs is only relevant for those who who shout. And those shall be ignored, right?
Claudeserieux will be able to tell you whether or not free programs like TypeLight and FontForge have a kerning tool. I stick to Font Creator. But often the choice of software is based on what one is used to.
And not only software says Ronald Trump

Menhir, I also think maybe paulinejulia does not realize she is not downloading a ttf but a zip.
The old hide extension for known file types issue.
My very first search showed 3 conversion sites.
McAfee does not like your TinyUpload link.
In your one font here on dafont Abraham, Calculative, I can not find any kerning at all. Also no creator info. And, question, why is it a symbol font?

Stretched from here to eternity.
The google image completely covers your image. So there is little (rather nothing) I can do with it. Alas.
