If you cannot view Bangla in your Computer. Please follow 2 steps that are given below.
It’s very easy and would take just a few minutes only……
Step 1: Install Bangla Fonts
You need to have any Bangla Unicode font in your computer. If you don’t have it, download is easy!
I prefer “SolaimanLipi ” most as the Bangla Unicode font. Download SolaimanLipi from here now!
Now, Copy and paste the fonts to “C:\windows\fonts” or “control panel\fonts” folder.
Step 2: Browser Configurations
I would like to request you for using Mozilla Firefox or Safari as browser for viewing Bangla without any inconvenience.
Now, configure the browser you use by following the instructions blow:
a) Mozilla Firefox
1. From menu click on “Tools” and select “Options”
2. From this window click on “Content”.
3. Click on “Advanced” button.
4. Click on the drop down list for option “Fonts for” select “Bengali” from this list.
5. Complete all the option fields by selecting “SolaimanLipi” or any other Bangla font.
6. Select “Default Character Encoding” as “Unicode (UTF-8)” and click Ok.
7. Click Ok again to complete your setup.
Note: Firefox 3 is working fine. Please, use Firefox 3. This completes your setup for Mozilla Firefox.
b) Internet Explorer
I discourage you to use Internet Explorer and other browsers like Google Chrome, Opera for Bangla purpose. They are simply awful!!
1. From menu, go to “Tools>Internet Options”
2. From this window click on “Fonts”
3. Click on the drop down list for “Language Scripts” and select “Bengali” from this drop down list (you may have to scroll up to locate it)
4. Select any desired Bangla font (e.g. SolaimanLipi) for “Web Page Font”. Then click OK and OK again.
If you have different BROWSER other than this, please click here. In most cases, these two steps are enough. If you cannot view Bangla till now, for more supports, please follow the 3rd step.
Step 3: Install ‘i-complex’
Just download and install “I-COMPLEX” in your computer. Click here to Download i-complex for installing Bangla Support of Windows in your computer.
After downloading is completed, run the software and click on “Install Complex Scripts” button. It will be installed and you might need to restart the computer.
If “i-complex” is already installed in Windows PC, ALL DONE!
আশা করি এখন আপনি কম্পিউটারে বাংলা পড়তে পারছেন। এখন থেকে মনের আবেগ-অনুভূতিগুলোর মাধ্যম হোক বাংলা……
