Arabic keyboard

The Arabic keyboard (Arabic: لوحة المفاتيح العربية) is the Arabic keyboard layout used for the Arabic language. All computer Arabic keyboards contain both Arabic letters and Latin letters, the latter being necessary for URLs and e-mail addresses. Since Arabic is written from right to left, when one types with an Arabic keyboard, the letters will start appearing from the right side of the screen.
