Uma Leht is the only Võro-language newspaper; has been published for 15 years. Previously, there was no regular press for Võro-speaking people. The Võro language had a reputation as non-standard language and its speakers switching to Standard Estonian only.
Uma Leht has four pages and it is published bimonthly. Its topics include Võro-language news and feature articles about different activities, traditional life-style, people who have taken up different initiatives, country life, traditional/ethnic economy, heritage culture, etc. Uma Leht is an outlet for those people who have been willing to read and speak the Võro language and want to communicate with the Võro-speaking community via media.
Uma Leht is also an outlet for ordinary people, non-professionals, who are interested in publishing their creative writing, such as fiction and memoirs; every year the publishing desk of UL organises a large competition of writings; the twelfth round was held in 2015. Over 12 years, more than 1400 stories have been sent to the competition with more than 250 different authors.
