There are two ways to show Persian vowels: With signs or letters. Short vowels come with signs and long ones with letters. Persian short vowels are:

The first sign from right always goes over letters and is called:"a:", as in: apple

The second sign from right, the one under the line, always sets under letters and is called:"e", as in: ago

The third one goes always over the letters and is called:"o" as in orange
