Two Handed Fingerspelling Font
This two handed fingerspelling alphabet is used in Australia, New Zealand and Britian.
These fonts differ when "extended" characters are used, such as numbers, questions marks and hyphens.

These fonts are designed to be "read", so they are as the receiver would see them. Note that Capital Letters have letters imposed over them, while Lower Case Letters do not.

Download the Fingerspelling Font file and save to your computer, then install it in a few steps. Installation Instructions
