Jawi keyboard layout a keyboard layout for writing Jawi script on the Windows platform. It is based on a standard set by SIRIM (Standard Malaysia) in 2011, the layout was devised by Technical Committee in Multi-Lingual Computing at SIRIM. It was approved in 2011.

The design is based on 3 principles;

  • the layout is based on existing Arabic keyboard layout since many Jawi characters are based on Arabic characters
  • Make minimal changes to the existing layout
  • Add feature to support Jawi

As a result, the Technical Committee agree on two designs, Normal Position and Shift Position.
