I signed up on pronunciator.com and was attempting to start their Hindi courses, however none of the browsers I use will display the Devanagari font used in the lessons (which are Flash-based). I've tried Safari, Firefox and Chrome, tweaked every imaginable browser and system setting and all I get are blank boxes (or asterisks if I click on them). I'm able to use the site with all the browsers I have on my Windows 10 partition, but am having zero luck getting it to work on the Mac (2011 iMac, El Cap). I'll enclose a screenshot of what I'm seeing. Any help appreciated :)

Yep, I did that. They're response:

"I found this on a forum just now: "Devanagari seems to work if you use Apple's Kohinoor font."
I hope that helps!"

Well, the font is on my system, but obviously is not being accessed/utilized. FWIW, I did have to download the whole East Asian language support software to get the Hindi script work in Windows 10 (can't believe they're latest Windows support is for XP!), so I wonder if there's a similar need for OS X. Determined to figure this out...
