The virtual Khowar keyboard is the Khowar software that allows users to type characters. Normally, a virtual keyboard provides on screen keyboards with clickable buttons to type characters. In this case, the typing is done using a mouse or a finger on touch screens, he added. He claimed that his virtual Khowar keyboard can also use a physical keyboard to type characters.
