Leb Keys Touch
The Lebanese often need to adapt to the trends and technologies of more developed countries. This explains why they had to adapt the qwerty keyboard to the Arabic language, recreating Arabic letters that didn’t exist in Latin: they substituted their missing letters with numbers. Latin Arabic was born, but it didn’t come without a compromise: Each time the Lebanese wanted to write a word, they had to go back and forth between the letter and number pages of the English keyboard, adding up to 30 additional minutes of hassle when it comes to the heavy texters.
Touch created Leb Keys, a mobile app that carries a 3rd party keyboard: A Latin Arabic mobile Keyboard. The Keyboard was created by identifying the letters that the Lebanese don’t use when chatting in Latin Arabic (Q,P,X,V) and replacing them with the numbers they do use (3,2,7,5). Once downloaded, the keyboard became part of their phone’s preset keyboard menu.
