According to the 2002 census, there are 11,432 Mansi people in Russia, but only 2007 of them speak Mansi. Almost every Mansi speaks Russian, but it is unclear how many of them speak Mansi as their mother tongue.
The following Mansi texts are ready for presentation. We offer them here in html format (for easy viewing in most browsers) and as pdf files.
We use the Charis SIL font, which is downloadable for free. You will get the best results for the html files if you have that font installed on your computer, but other Unicode fonts (such as Gentium or Lucida Sans Unicode which can be found on most PCs and Macs) contain almost all characters needed and will do as well.
