I’m doing some testing on Apple iPad and Mac but need some help. Apparently there is a font-issue with the Burmese texts so I want to find out how far this issue goes i.e. if it is only the older iOS or also the newer ones.
So if you own an Apple Mac or iPad, please have a look at this page and then get back to me, mentioning your system type and iOS version:
The first lines should look like this:
However, I found that on the iPad with iOS 5.1.1. it looks like this:
Thanks @dancarter! It looks like the issue is (nearly) fixed in iOS 10. @Aranya tested it on an iPad with iOS9 and the bug still showed. Apple adviced to install another font, which she did but that did not make any difference (which I did not expect anyway because SC uses it’s own fonts and does not rely on the device’s installed fonts).
However, I see that there are a few new issues with the Burmese font in iOS 10. Firstly, the bottom diacritical mark in the header is slightly offset, but this is not a real problem as it is still readable. But in the first line you see a dotted circle with a “tail” underneath. This should be part of the previous character.
Interestingly, Safari on Mac does not show this problem.
@Aranya and @dancarter, would you both be able to check if you can download Firefox and/or Chrome on your ipad/iphone and see how that looks? Maybe also check the reader in both Safari and Firefox.
I checked this on Chrome on the latest Android phone and there it worked well. Also Silk on Kindle seems to work well.
