This is quite an interesting news,which we hardly get to know that often. Probably its for the first time that Google has honoured an actor, former Chief Minister late NT Rama Rao by naming a Telugu font after him for his invaluable services to cinema. As per the latest reports, it is learnt that from now onwards, Google Fonts directory will consist of NTR Font. Telugus across the World have been elated with this news.
Recently, about 6 New Fonts have been added to Google Fonts directory. Apart from NTR, The font named after former Health Minister Mandali Venkata Krishna Rao (F/O AP Deputy Speaker Mandali Buddha Prasad) has also been launched. These Telugu fonts released by Silicon Andhra (SIL Open Font License 1.1) can be used free of cost.
We have already 11 Telugu fonts available on Google fonts dictionary. And with the addition of these new 6 fonts, the count has reached 17 now. To over lack of good open-source fonts, Efforts have been made to release few more Telugu Fonts by Sankranthi.
