I was thinking that a lot of you might be interested in typing in the Arabic alphabet. You have a couple of options here:
1. Turn on the Arabic keyboard on your computer in the languages part of the control panel. This requires a lot of memorization of where the letters are on the keys, but would probably be beneficial to learn if you plan on doing a lot of writing in Arabic.
2. Find a good online Arabic keyboard. If you just use a few Arabic words here and there or just want to experiment, this is what I would recommend.
The online keyboard that I use is http://www.yamli.com/arabic-keyboard/ . It is a "smart" keyboard and works really well. All you have to do is type what you want to say in the English letters (like "in sha' Allah") and it will pop out the Arabic for you. It is way faster than any other keyboard I've used and is really accurate. It even lets you choose from a list of words just to make sure that you get the right one.
This is also connected to www.yamli.com which is a search engine that searches for the Arabic word along with the English transliteration. It shows them all up on the screen at once which is really great! :-)
Let me know how you all like it إن شاء الله !!!
