Hindi Script not displaying correctly

I have been using my computer for Hindi lessons for a couple weeks now and all of a sudden the script in the answer boxes is not displaying correctly. It's as if the top of the letters is missing. I have tried Chrome, Firefox and Explorer and the same thing happens on all of them. I can still do the lessons on my phone's app as they display correctly there. Has anyone run into this issue? How can I fix it!? Thanks!

I am also seeing this issue. Seems like a sizing issue. If you zoom way in, you can see the little stubs at the top where text is getting cut off.

For those with a little bit of technical skills, I've found a way to work around the issue.

In Chrome, right click on the text box with the bad display and select "Inspect". In the window that pops up, look for a line that says "overflow: hidden" If you uncheck this box, the top of the characters will show.


I can confirm that this solution works. However if you reload the website at any point you will need to uncheck the box again.


I also find the top part that is vowel signs are missing


I have the same problem. It suddenly started (I could use the website for months without this problem), so I guess it is a problem with the webpage.


Same for me. Both in input fields and when displayed on the screen. Mainly ु and ू (u and U) are rendered on top of the level instead of on the bottom. I only see this on Duolingo in Firefox. Not in Chrome.

This started two weeks ago or so for me.


Since I installed some Hindi Fonts I don't have this problem anymore.


On Android phone the problem is that the vowel marks are not above the consonants, but next to them, over a small bubble. (Doesn't matter how large or small the font is, they will always do it.)
