The purpose of this research is to create a Lampung alphabet keyboard layout for more effective typing of the Lampung alphabet. The methods used are UX (User Experience) that are, requirements gathering, alternative design, prototype, evaluation, and result report generation. The layout design is created by eliminating the use of the SHIFT key and regrouping parent letters, the child letters in a more effective composition. The layout design of the Lampung alphabet was printed using the Laser Engraver tool on the keyboard. Through the test, the typing speed increased to 208% of the average value of 62 seconds to 32 seconds. In addition to the results of WPM (Word Per Minute) on keyboard layouts with 8.7 WPM which is faster than previous WPM research but still slower than QWERTY keyboard WPM. Testing of character quality, readability, and difficulty level to know the flaws in the Lampung RaTaYa keyboard layout with good results.
