Manual alphabet is a set of manual alphabetical letters, corresponding to the written/spoken alphabet. It is used for fingerspelling a string of the alphabetical letters of a certain written/spoken word, person's name, etc.

The two-handed British manual alphabet is commonly used in Australia, England, New Zealand and some other countries. Both British manual alphabet and British sign language are entirely different from the American manual alphabet and American Sign Language which are mainly used in the U.S. and Canada.
