Arabic Keyboard is a simple-to-use application that shows an on-screen Arabic keyboard and lets you type in Arabic characters within this environment, or send keys to other currently active programs.
The installation procedure is rapid and uneventful, without requiring special attention. The virtual keyboard can be set to stay on top of other windows, and you can hide the text box if you just want to send Arabic keys to other tools which support word processing.
In order to do so, you have to activate a program that runs in the background. Note that the software app does not recognize utilities you launch after running Arabic Keyboard.
It features a "Smart Sentence" box that contains sentences or expressions you regularly use, in order to insert them with a click. You can add as many items as yo want, as well as delete them.
Aside from the Arabic language, Arabic Keyboard offers support for Farsi, Urdu and Hebrew, along with a typing game. You can also change settings for the keyboard font.
Unfortunately, this program cannot assign Arabic keys to the actual keyboard, thus allowing you to type in Arabic characters from the peripheral device. It uses a low amount of CPU and RAM, so it doesn't slow down overall performance.
We haven't come across any errors in our tests. However, the utility does not work properly on newer OS platforms. For example, it was unable to send keys to other apps in Windows 7. We must also keep in mind that Arabic Keyboard has not been updated for a long time.
