Further, he has established an open-source database and Pashto web fonts that can use other search engines like Bing or Google.
The principal objective to publish web font in any software is because it is an innovation that gives the facility to download a specific font file along with the website. It means that any browser which is supporting web fonts will have the same font. This software has a web font feature that makes it more convenient to use.
On the other, the establishment of an open-source database feature in any software gives much assistance. It has an open code, free to be downloaded, modified, and can easily be reused. This software has unlimited text translations, and the users can translate even the whole document in a few moments. It protects data to prevent leakage on other sites.
The ambitious contribution of Pohyal Stori is an excellent example for upcoming generations, and the world needs people like him that not only works for its nation but also makes his country proud across the globe.
