Abstract

This article describes a new type of sign language developed by a deafblind man in Spain. His sign language combines both the Spanish manual alphabet finger signing and Spanish Sign Language (LSE), adapted for use in the palm of the hand, i.e. it uses both letters and signs in the hand. This method produces a faster speed of communication than traditional sign or manual spelling. Keys to using the signs, developing the system as well as advantages and disadvantages of the system are included. DBI REVIEW, #27, January-June 2001, pp. 4-6.
