Problem viewing Bhojpuri? | Download Font

Help reading Bhojpuri

Bhojpuria.com uses Unicode to display Bhojpuri words on the web pages. If you are using Windows XP, you should have no problem viewing the Bhojpuri Text on our website. However, Some older operating systems do not support complex text rendering and you should not use such systems to edit Indic scripts.

This page lists the methods for enabling complex text rendering based on the operating environment or browser you are using.

Check for existing support

The following image shows you how a correctly enabled computer will render the devnagari script:

The following lines of text show how your computer renders the above lines:

Devanagari क + 'ि' कि

If the rendering on your computer matches the rendering on the image for your particular script, then you have already enabled complex text support! You should be able to view text correctly in that script. However this does not mean you will be able to edit text in that script. To edit such text you need to install the appropriate keyboard software on your operating system.
