Smart Fonts for Hindi & English

A smart font is a 'type software' that has rendering 'logic' built-in along with graphical designs of glyphs.

DevaNagari script is used to write Hindi, Nepali, Marathi, Sanskrit and many other South Asian languages.

We give utmost attention to quality that's why we can't offer lots of fonts.

There are many non-standard (Non-Unicode) DevaNagari fonts of ordinary quality available for free download. If you start testing them one by one you will waste a lot of time.

Our DevaNagari-Latin Font

We have redesigned our type software many times (over 2 decades!) for issues relating to font formats, rendering, resolutions, etc. We have been designing it for various computers and their operating systems.

The name of our smart font is Akhil HE. 'H' in 'Akhil HE' stands for Hindi and 'E' for English.

There are lots of advantages in typesetting bilingual DevaNagari-Latin text using our font. This font produces unmatched results while composing either plain DevaNagari text or mixed DevaNagari-Latin text.

If you have bought version 1.0 of this type software and now need the currency sign for '₹' in it, please send an e-mail to us. You will get free upgrade.

Since 2005, this font 'Akhil HE' is a professionally hinted, Unicode compliant, OpenType font for DevaNagari and Latin scripts. Its OT Layout tables for DevaNagari are very logical and meticulously formulated. The glyphs (shapes/letter-forms) in 'Akhil HE' are clean and carefully drawn and redrawn again and again to remove even insignificant errors in curves etc.

We did rigorous proofing and thorough testing of 'Akhil HE' on Win 98 SE, Win 2000 and XP before it was released in 2005. Since then we have tested it on Win Vista, 7, 8 and 10 and have not found any problem. We have also installed it on few mobile phones running Android.

Why to buy our Smart Font?

Do you wonder why you need our DevaNagari smart font when modern OSes come pre-installed with fonts containing DevaNagari glyphs? Should you buy when there are many freely downloadable fonts available thru the Internet?

For the answer, read the following testimonial by an esteemed professional (who bought a license for our font and is using it regularly.)

"I really like the 'Akhil HE' font. None of the freely available fonts are as useful to me as I attempt to learn to read and type Hindi."

"Why? There are several reasons, let me list three of them."

"The most important is that it is clearly legible. Even at smaller font sizes it is the easiest Devanagari font to read. Other fonts require that I increase the point size before they become clear, limiting the amount of text I can display at any one time. If you surf even some of the commercial websites in Hindi you will see what I mean. For me, it is most important to see the Hindi characters clearly."

"Another reason I like the 'Akhil HE' font is for the Saral Nagari approach. As a beginner, learning Hindi on my own, uncommon conjuncts pose a problem. With 'Akhil HE', I can often cut a Hindi word with an unfamiliar conjunct that has been displayed in another Unicode font, and paste it into a document with 'Akhil HE' as default, and voilà the mystery is solved."

"Still another reason is that the English part of the font is equally as clear as the Hindi, and well balanced with it. I am often typing the Hindi exercizes from one of my workbooks, working them out, then typing the English alongside. With 'Akhil HE', I don't need to change fonts or font sizes very often."

Only Apple (iMac/iPhone) users complain as the OpenType rendering for complex scripts is implemented incompletely via Apple's AAT technology.

Other small components of Sugam are free for all of our customers. So buying 'Sugam' is same as buying 'Akhil HE'.

Whenever you buy a new smart phone, tablet or a laptop, check the quality of pre-installed Indian fonts, specially positioning of marks (matra/s) and display at smaller sizes.
