Most printers in your area.. not everywhere.

The default font depends on the system and what it has installed. 
This the order:
"Arial Regular";
"Times New Roman Regular";
"Helvetica Regular";
"Helvetica Neue Regular";
"DejaVu Sans Book";
"DejaVu Sans Condensed";
"Open Sans Regular";
"Liberation Sans Regular";

Then alphabetical.

I can check the default language side though.

Thats one option
