Unicode support in IE browser before version 6.0 is not good. We recommend you to upgrade to at least IE 6.0+
For Linux Operating System
Copy one of the Telugu fonts file from Telugu Fonts
(we recommend pothana2000.ttf
font) to .fonts directory in the user's home directory. If .fonts directory does not exist in the home directory, please create it. Finally run the command 'fc-cache' from the command prompt. It is very important to restart the browser, then only you will be able to read the content in Telugu.
Mac and iPhone
In Mac OS X 10.4, if you are using 'Safari' web browser, no need to do anything.
Unfortunately iPhone doesn't support any Indian Unicode fonts. We are as eager as you to make our language channels iPhone compatible
This will fix almost all the problems. If you still have any problems contact us with the browser version, OS version and the problem you are facing.
If you still have issue, please write to us
