osx

This font works in Photoshop but not in Word. Is there a way to fix it?

Forums: 

I have this free font provided by EPSON. It's a very old font that used to be shipped with printer drivers in the 90s. I can use it in Windows without a problem. I now want to use it on my Mac (OSX 10.8) and see that the font name is garbled when I install it but the contents in the preview show up fine. I can use it in Photoshop alright but I mainly want to use it in MS Word 2011. In Word I can see the font listed (name garbled) but can't select it. I tried selecting some text and then choosing the font but it defaults to the previously selected font.
