What is the purpose of this online Arabic keyboard?

Do you need to type in Arabic but don’t have a keyboard? Or maybe you’re just curious about what an online Arabic keyboard looks like. Either way, you’ve come to the right place! Even though Windows and iMac systems have built-in multilingual keyboards, it is complicated to be able to type in Arabic without seeing the letters on your physical keyboard.

Consequently, ArabiKey’s keyboard is intended for computer users possessing a QWERTY or any other physical keyboard without Arabic letters displayed. The keyboard aims to allow you to write in the Arabic language while viewing the letters you press.

Whether you want to write very long texts or simple Google searches, the adjustable writing box adapts to the length of your text. The keyboard is designed to make it easier for you to type in Arabic and puts all the numbers, diacritics, and other symbols at your disposal.

How to use the virtual Arabic keyboard?

The keyboard is intuitive and contains all the Arabic alphabet letters. In other words, all you have to do is type a letter on your physical keyboard so that the corresponding Arabic letter displayed on the virtual keyboard appears in the writing box.
