Orientalist Keyboard Layouts

Lit, L.W. Cornelis van

Keyboard layouts for macOS and Windows for typing in Arabic script and Arabic transliteration in Latin script. 

These layouts will make it easier for non-native speakers of Arabic to type out text as letters are assigned to keys in a more intuitive manner, as though you are transliterating.

The transliteration layout will make typing šṭrānġē characters used for scholarly transliteration of Arabic a flawless and painless job - system wide, meaning that this does not only work within Microsoft Word but works anywhere on your computer within any software.

Please refer to the images and the ReadMe file to get acquainted with how the keys of your keyboard are reassigned.

Please follow instructions in the ReadMe file for how to install.

Note that the Windows version dates back from 2014. In case of failure please look online how your operating system might have changed since these instructions were drafted.
