It delighted me inexpressibly to find that they knew the manual alphabet.
We have cards, bookmarks and posters of the fingerspelling alphabet (sometimes called the manual alphabet ).
Deafblind manual interpreters spell words into a deafblind person's hand using the deafblind manual alphabet or the block alphabet.
One who is entirely dependent upon the manual alphabet has always a sense of restraint, of narrowness.
It astonished me to find how much easier it is to talk than to spell with the fingers, and I discarded the manual alphabet as a medium of communication on my part; but Miss Sullivan and a few friends still use it in speaking to me, for it is more convenient and more rapid than lip-reading.
