In this video, you will explore the different features of the Arabic language. First, we will add an Arabic Keyboard and start typing Arabic. Switch to right-to-left display and examine some Arabic character shaping characteristics, in addition to ligatures, kashida, diacritics and Arabic numerals. Short video and filled with demos.
For your reference, this is a table of the characters used in my demo:
|Arabic String||English Keyboard equivalent||Remarks|
|ا ااا||h hhh||The character “alef”, isolated, initial, middle and final forms|
|ث ثثث||e eee||The character “thaa”, isolated, initial, middle and final forms|
|ه ههه||i iii||The character “Haa”, isolated, initial, middle and final forms|
|لا||gh||Ligature character, “Lam” + “Alef”|
|ـــــــ||J||Kashida , or Tatweel character|
