LaserArabic & Farsi in Unicode for Macintosh provides high-quality, Unicode-encoded Arabic and Persian fonts (described above) in TrueType® format for standard modern Arabic and Persian, for typing right to left with proper line wrap and full justification (in Mellel, sold separately). The fonts include OpenType layout features which provide automatic contextualization of consonants and proper positioning of vowels and diacritic marks as you type. The fonts do not include the distinctive symbols of Koranic Arabic. LaserArabic & Farsi in Unicode for Macintosh includes five keyboard layouts. There are three Arabic keyboard layouts—one phonetic (based on the English keyboard), one Standard (based on the Macintosh Arabic layout), and an additional Arabic phonetic keyboard based on the French Azerty layout. There are two Persian keyboard layouts—one phonetic based on the English layout, and one Standard, based on the Macintosh Persian layout. The user can switch between English and Arabic, or English and Persian, by pressing the caps lock key.
