What alphabet is used by deaf People?

Understanding what somebody else is saying when you are deaf can be an impossible task, making the deaf person feel isolated and alone. Dumb people, unable to speak, are similarly denied the basic human medium of communication. Finger spelling is a method of talking to someone using a signaling code, similar to semaphore. The two-handed method used in Australia. Britain, Burma, India and some other countries, utilizes relative positions of the hands and fingers to spell different letters. It is quicker to learn than the one-handed method and can be seen more clearly at a distance.
