Type specimen generator

I’m looking for a software that would allow me to test a big amount of fonts by producing one page (or at least, one paragraph) of text for each font in a folder.

I’m not looking for a simple sample phrase nor a full fontset, but for a whole paragraph at least, in order to look at kerning and greyness and be able to compare each font. I have tried Font View, but it cant produce a whole paragraph.
By the way, fonts are Type 1 and OTF;

Edit: …and I run a Windows 8.1 64 bits.

Answer

Have a look at https://github.com/impallari/font-testing-page
Demo: http://www.impallari.com/testing/

The Font Testing Page is a tool primarily intended for type designers and independent foundries to ‘Drag and Drop’ their work in progress into a browser. It can also be used by art directors, graphic designers, teachers and students interested in seeing how a typeface works on the web.

There is a short video demonstrating this tool, http://vimeo.com/40296571

Operation is simple:

Drag the font you want to try to the upper area of the Testing Page.
Add more fonts and you’ll see their file names and file sizes as buttons
