Have you tried out WordMark.it yet? I just learned about it. Let’s say you are trying decide what font to use on your Cricut machine. Watch as I use this site to find a good font!
The website is http://wordmark.it and it let’s you see a certain phrase with all your fonts on your computer. Also handy to filter by like fonts.
You can also download the image, so this would be handy to bring the image into Cricut Design space. I can imagine if you are trying to space a font that is a script image, so that the letters are welded and spaced correctly.
