Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is responsive layout ?

Q: How can I hear audio ?
A: We recently (w.e.f. May 2019) upgraded our site and have new HTML5 audio player in place. So you should not have any problem hearing audio on any device -desktop, laptop, iPad or Mobile phones (both iphone and android). In case you can not play, please upgrade your browser.
Q: I do not hear any sound when I try to listen lectures/bhajans. What should I do?
A: 1) Make sure that speakers are attached to the sound card and if necessary, powered on. And 2) Check Volume Level and Balance of the Master and Wave in Volume Control dialog box. If it is zero or very low, you may not hear any sound while it is playing.
Q: When I listen to Audio, the voice is not continuous, what's the problem?
A: There is nothing wrong. You must be using a slow internet connection (< 64Kbps speed). It takes a while to stream the audio file to play on your computer. Alternately, you can use PAUSE while the file is loaded onto your computer and then use the PLAY button; thereby you can have continuous audio.
Q: I can not see Gujarati and Sanskrit words. Do I need to download any fonts?
A : If you see garbled characters on our web pages, most likely you have not set encoding preference in your browser. Click on View > Encoding > Select UTF-8 (Unicode) and you should be able to see Gujarati and Sanskrit words.
If you still can not see, either you do not have latest browser version of either Internet Explorer / Firefox, or you are using older version of Windows like Windows 95 or 98 that do not have in-built Unicode support. If that is the case, please upgrade your browser / operating system.
We have presented the material on the site in Unicode fonts. Unicode is an international font encoding standard for most of the world’s languages. Some Unicode fonts are included with Windows ME and later versions of Windows. Windows XP, 2000, and Mac OS 9.2 support the Unicode standard more fully. Similarly, Internet Explorer 6 and above has native support for UTF-8 fonts. So there are no fonts to download.
