American Sign Language: "type"

The sign for "type" as in "Dr. Bill can type 94 words per minute" is done by holding your hands out in front of you as if on a keyboard.  Wiggle your fingers a bit as if typing on a keyboard.



Note:  This sign doesn't mean "What type" as in "What kind of..." -- instead see: "WHAT KIND"

Note: If you want to sign "texting" (as in communicating via a smart phone) do a mime movement that looks like you are holding a phone in both hands (two slightly modfied "A" handshapes held together) and moving your thumbs as if texting.
