The last enhancement was difficult to add but it happened.
There is a trick to it.
Anuvadak now uses Arial Unicode MS font to show all languages. Unfortunately I cannot pack the font with the application as it would be illegal. Also the font file is around 28 MB. But no problem.
The font is packed with all the versions of Microsoft office 2007 onwards. It is located in Windows> Fonts directory by name Arial Unicode MS. Download the font from the windows (PC) directory and copy it your windows phone > Windows > Fonts directory. Install the app, Restart the phone and bingo!! all languages show up now
For people who don't have access to Arial Font, I am attaching a another Unicode font (free). Download that font and repeat the copying instructions as above and it should show up nicely. One thing to remember, when using the alternate font remember to change settings from the application menu to choose Bitstream cyberbit.
The drawback of using this (Bitstream cyberbit) font is that it doesn't show every character in every language. Some characters from Arabic, Persian and Chinese are missing. Hindi is completely missing.
If anybody has any problem, let me know and I will try to help you as much as I can.
