Bariz    Bariz

The upper case Arabic alphabet "Bariz" has been created by Nabil Guerbi to make it possible to write Arabic with capital letters. Existing Arabic alphabet does not allow writing texts with detached letters and does not include capital letters. Bariz alphabet letters would increase Arabic text readability and would enhance the Arabic alphabet with a writing tool that can be used:

Two variants are suggested for Bariz letter symbols: a doted variant (Bariz 1), which is closer to the Standard Arabic alphabet and a non-doted variant (Bariz 2) which removes unnecessary dots and incorporates some dots into the letter symbols.
