Arabic Keyboard Layout Finished Programming!

December 6th, 2010

Well, after about a year of going without being able to type in Arabic with the Arabic Digits (١٢٣٤٥٦٧٨٩٠). I decided to take matters into my own hands after being unable to find an already prepared solution. After about 2 hours of programming and messing around with Microsoft’s KLC, I have made a complete layout that includes both the numbers and the characters! (Unlike the KLC that Microsoft includes in the language package of Windows 7). So I can now type Hindi Digits (also known as Arabic Numbers) along with the Arabic characters! It doesn’t stop there though, I will now share the love with the rest of the world who can stumble upon my blog.

I call the layout “Arabic 103” since 102 was the broken version. Below is a screenshot of the keyboard layout.

Windows 7 Arabic Keyboard with Numbers and Characters

I have compressed the setup files into a .zip file, you can download it Here.

Please let me know if you come across this and use the layout! Let me know of any issues!

Update December 28th:
Due to request, below is the screenshot of what characters you get when you push shift. Please note, the empty circles indicate that there is no character there (that means it is either going above or below the letter, things such as fattah). Let me know in the comments if you would like to see anything else with this.
