Manually Coded English:
Also See "Linguistics of Visual English"

          MCE stands for "Manually Coded English." It is a signing system that attempts to represent English on the Hands. Most culturally Deaf people do not encourage the use of MCE, but its existence continues in large part due to the decisions of Hearing teachers, parents, and administrators in schools where Deaf students attend. While MCE has its good points, skilled ASL users generally consider MCE to be very boring, time consuming, and laborious (takes a lot of extra work).
