Trouble Reading?

For better viewing, download Sindhi fonts. Note that the PDF versions on blog page are not as up to date and they often contain more typos.  But the PDF versions do not require any special fonts.  

With WindowsXP or Internet Explorer (IE) version 6 and above, in IE Click on:>> View >> Encoding >> and select unicode UTF-8

If Unicode does not appear, go to more options and you will see a dropdown list. select UTF-8.    Reading English pages will not be affected.

To download Sindhi fonts for better viewing experience, and to write in Sindhi, see messages below:

From: Abdul-Majid Bhurgri
A few days ago Gul-Agha asked, “Where can one install all the fonts?” And I promised that I will develop an installer which will do this. I have now developed a compact and easy MBFonts Installer. This automatically installs 25 Sindhi Unicode fonts to the system. It is available for download at following:

The download links are also given in the Downloads section of Sindhi Computing forum.

I thank Abdus-Sattar Samo (Zargar), Mansoor Pirzada/Shakoor Qazi, Agha Sabir, Irfan Bhutto, Abdul-Aziz Mangrio, Shabeer Kumbhar and other developers of these fonts for providing these valuable resources free of charge just for the love of their language and land. In fact we all owe them thanks and the way we can say it is by acknowledging their work and mention at least a line of thanks in the publications and webpages where we use these fonts.This gesture will encourage others also to work selflessly for their ideals.

I request you all to disseminate this message far and wide on Sindhi and Sindh related email lists and websites so that maximum Sindhis can take full advantage of this invaluable free resource for Sindhi language. I also request you for your feedback and comments. As more fonts become available, I will keep on updating the installer acordingly.

Thanks you all. Promote use of Sindhi on computers and the internet.

New Sindhi Installer for Vista & XP

Dear Friends,
Now that Windows Vista has been released, some of you may already have installed it and others will start using at some point in the future.
I observed that old installers do not work on
Vista. Accordingly I have made a new MBSindhi2007 installer which works on Vista
as well as on XP. Also, this is easier to use. Once you have extracted the files (by chosing Extract All… option as you right click on the downloaded folder), simply run the MBSindhi2007 installer and it will automatically take care of complete installation. Unlike before, you do not have to go to control panel, add language and chose the keyboard. All these steps are automated in this new installer. The link for downloading the new installer is http://bhurgri.com/MBSindhi2007.zip

Use Sindhi on computers and encourage others to do so.

With best wishes,

Abdul-Majid Bhurgri

  1. Saeen salam,
    i tried to view your blog but text appears in boxes, i visited trouble in reading page and downloaded new MB sindhi intaller and installed on system but yet boxes appears, also i tried to enable VIEW > ENCODING > UNICODE (UTF-8) but still situation is same. pl guide me. I am using windows XP and IE version 6.0.

  2. Appearance of boxes in place of some letters is usually due to the font used on the webpage not being in the user’s system and system substituting a font which lacks Sindhi characters.

    Please note that MBSindhi installer installs keyboard and two Sindhi fonts. It enables you to write in Sindhi and view the webpages which use MBSindhi Web or MB Lateefi fonts.

    I have checked this issue once more and here is one possible solution for this unwanted font substitution:

    In the Internet Explorer go to Tools >> Options >> Fonts and select Arabic from Language script drop box and then in the Webpage font list select [MBSindhi Web or MB Lateefi, if available, otherwise] Tahoma or such other font which has Sindhi character set. Click OK and then view the page again. This should remove the boxes and display page in Tahoma font and it will be readable.

    Those who have problem viewing Sindhi pages should try this out and send feedback.

  3. i did not undestand some leters of sindhi ,then wht i do ?

  4. Copy all the Sindhi fonts to your windows/fonts directory.

    Then you can read Sindhi easily.

    for composing Sindhi refer to Majid Bhurgri’s website.

  5. Salam Mitha…
