I wonder about Yekgirtú, would it not be easier to use double letters rater than the ´ when writing on computers etc. at the moment at least.
For example ee = é, ii=í, uu=ú
This would ease the writing and speed, would it not? Also some mediums do not have the ´so it would be impossible to use yekgirtú. However when writing by hand í, é, ú may well be used, there is however always the backside that when writing fast it is not always easy to distinguish í form i for example. What say you?

It will confuse users!

This is not going to work for Kurdish. The Finish and Dutch languages are using these concept and they have huge problems with spelling at early age. Then again you will repeat the same mistake as they did for Kurdish Arabic script to use the same latter represented too many characters of the alphabet.

The issue of typing should not be a problem when you have a system in place for frequent Kurdish writing.

So you can install a Unified Keyboard. But the í é ú are in all Keyboard even Arabic. These are the basic Latin letters which are supported by any computer. I did these tests in 1994 and I am sure we have gone forward on the technology front.

I do not doubt that the use

I do not doubt that the use of í,é,ú is much better, and of course one could install the program you have designed, or even make a quick command on MS word that makes all ee into é automatically for example. But I have a problem when it comes to my moblie phone. When texting I cannot use í and ú or ù (é is fine) and there is no possibility of installing a program for it. What should one do in these rare cases? The only solution I see is the use of ii and uu.
