For example, these are some scripts:
- Arabic for Arabic/Persian/Urdu
- Devanagari for Hindi
- Kanji/Kana for Japanese
- Hebrew with Niqqud
How do you typically write these letters on a normal keyboard? How does it work? Are there any good images or videos that show how this works or show people typing on it to show their workflow?
The reason I ask is I am interested in making a keyboard tool for a custom script and wondering what best practices are or how they normally work. I also want to see if I can improve on existing keyboard designs, or at least replicate them.
Do you type some key-command and then press TAB to get the character? I've seen like in Chinese you type the sound I think, using ASCII, then you get a dropdown with a list of choices of Chinese characters. What is it like for the other languages listed above sort of thing?
I have only written in English really, maybe Spanish, so I am unfamiliar with how this works and don't really know how to start searching for it.
