All of these Arabic keyboard downloads are accompanied with reviews by either users or critics, which the user can read on the website. The CNET review states the importance of an Arabic keyboard which shows the user the position of the Arabic keys. On most programs this is provided by a virtual keyboard that the user can look at on the computer screen as he or she types. This is important because the Arabic alphabet is completely different to the Roman alphabet.
Those who already know the layout of an Arabic keyboard can change the language of their keyboard on their computer. Windows users should go to Settings, select Time and Language, and then the language they want. From there the computer downloads an Arabic language pack to make Arabic the keyboard's primary language.
