Thank you @Amire80, @Bugreporter and @Nikki for helping out. As I am not, and probably @Biswajeet3 is probably not too, very aware of JS or how to fix this, I am going to wait for anyone who knows it well. To address the last part of Nikki's comment, I think Warang Citi's range(118A0–118FF) is relevant to this particular bug. But as Amir rightly points out, many other writing systems also suffer because of the larger issue. To test, and for Biswajeet and my own selfish reasons, it would really great to make things work for Warang Citi to test. I am a bit worried that the participants, who form a potential new set of contributors, of a workshop that Biswajeet and I conducted might completely forget if things take too long. Thanks in advance to whoever is helping out.

We reported this issue on the day of a workshop. To our frustration it did not work for any when the participants were trying to upload the pronunciations. If this bug remain unattended the problem is not fixed, the participants will probably forget. I'd request to the developers to help provide the ways to address this issue.

This was detected while many were trying to contribute pronunciations using Lingua Libre. So we created a few sample recordings (Ho-aandi.wav, Ho-andhratayed.wav, Ho-andun.wav) with Audacity and tried to directly upload to Commons using Upload Wizard and failed as the Warang Citi characters in the filenames were not recognized. So, we had to rename the files with transliterated Latin names and uploaded. This is the suspected reason for all uploads failing while attempting to record and upload using Lingua Libre.

I just downloaded using the exporting link above and it still shows the text in the same typeface with rendering issues. The svg remains the same like before.

Thanks Sam for the quick action. I have translated the messages. When Noto Sans Oriya has fixed the font issue, I still see the English messages instead of the Odia translation. It probably takes some time?
Thanks much, Sam!
Please do add the Odia (ISO: or) logo to this list: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Wikisource-logo-or.svg

As it has been over seven months I wanted to flag again and would request for further updates. Thanks.

The XY problem is an interesting perspective -- it helped me look at this whole thing from a different angle. That said, I'd like to ask you something too. When you're saying "I have a device" what is the persona of this person that you're assuming? The persona of an average Odia speaker who would read Wikipedia goes like this:

By project I meant a Wikimedia project. I opened Odia Wikisource in private mode (Firefox 76.0.1) as well and the default input is still Latin.

As someone who works with audio quite often, I wanted to add that noise is complex and not same universally. It totally depends on the recording gear, environment, unique voices each individual has. To put it in simple terms, if the high and mid frequency in the voice of a person are significant, a part of their voice might get removed if an auto-noise cancellation is used. This might make the recordings not so useful for any future text-to-speech projects. Many people including myself use pro gears for recording which already cleans up background noise. If a default noise cancellation/fading option is applied, it might affect the voice. So, any experimental noise cancellation feature should be kept optional.
1) What you expect and why:
As the project's primary language is Odia, the input method which is default for Odia on ULS should be enabled instead of Latin appearing by default. The reason being many new contributors might not log in or know how to change it in the very first place. Keeping the default input in the writing system that is used for the project will help.
Adding that this was recently discussed on the LinguaLibre discussion page.

Tested on Odia Wiktionary on Firefox 63.0.3. Syntax Highlighting and ULS don't work at the same time. I had to disable Syntax Highlighting to be able to use ULS.

Thanks for the ping @Amire80. It does not appear anymore.

It's working now. Thanks a lot all of you! :)
Both UplodWizard and other Move-Files-To-Commons tools but most importantly UploadWizard.

@Billinghurst Just curious why there is a need for a consensus to have a really essential feature on OR WS? Is it not understood the default features should have been made available in the beginning of the project release but has somehow not been made available so far?

Hi @KartikMistry, can you ignore 403 and 408 and use https://github.com/wikimedia/jquery.ime/pull/421 instead? As it was showing problem for mine, another Odia Wikimedian Gyan111 fixed both or-odiscript and or-lekhani. Can they be rebased now?

Hi @KartikMistry, please find the updated layout for Rodali at https://github.com/psubhashish/jquery.ime/commit/7524a1a3da55afcce4cdf48bbad251b20f77f413. I have also forwarded Gunadeep's email for verification. Thanks.
Hi @KartikMistry, thanks for starting this. @Amire80 actually has the email for the correct IME for as-rodali as Gunadeep, the developer faced a lot of problem in forking and submitting the request. He finally could not submit it from GitHub and sent an email to Amir.
The Odia ones are correct.

Hi @Nemo_bis, did not understand how a longer conversation could be too messy to turn a grave problem invalid? Do you regularly upload non-free images in your home wiki? If you did, then you must have understood the problems Wikimedians face. Not just in seeing hundreds and thousands of pages of pages without images, but showing the same to institutions and participants in outreach sessions is painful. You may delay or ask for more clarification. But closing down a request, especially when there is a unanimous consensus from the community is very nonsensical, sorry to say this bluntly.

Hey @Mdann52, can you point to the restrictions with fair use in India. Being a citizen, I am not aware of any. @Sipun also has mentioned how Bengali and Hindi Wikipedia allow fair use. Both are official Indian languages.

Hi @Krenair, yes. There is a consensus and it has been unanimously agreed that there is a need to re-enabling local file uploading on ORWP.

@Aklapper: Sorry for that. I was not aware as I was reporting a bug of this kind for the first time. Thanks for helping out. Hope this will be solved soon.
