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 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.
