I have tried hard do find a ready to use arabic layout for simple on-screen keyboard (sok) but have yet to find it. So i thought i do this thread my self.

Nice Job,
A request from someone who can not do any programming.
Can you please create one for Persian language too. There are only 4 characters which are different between persian and arabic.
Arabic has 28 letters while persian has 32.

Yes please do this for persian language as well. I have been looking for it.

I tried it. I ran onboard -l arabic.sok and it showed arabic letters, however it still didn't write arabic letters
