Turkey’s public offices to switch to F keyboard in 2017
ISTANBULTurkish public sector employees will switch to the F keyboard from the Q keyboard in 2017, ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) deputy Ekrem Erdem announced on Dec. 27.
Speaking at an event in Istanbul, Erdem, who is also the head of the Turkish Language and Literature Association (TDED), said public employees will switch to the F keyboard on their work computers as it is considered to be more compatible with the Turkish language.
Erdem added that the keyboards to be used will include new standards, such as extra keys for circumflex accents and the Turkish Lira symbol.
“Preparations are ongoing,” he said.
