Okay

To do the baby sign for okay, simply sign the ASL letters 'O' and 'K' successively.

Alternatively, your thumb and index finger on your dominant hand meet, making a circle, while the remaining fingers point up slightly separated. This is the same sign used by scuba divers to report an "OK" status, and it is also the ASL sign for the letter 'F'.

    What’s “okay” in sign language. Do you just finger spell it or is there an actual sign for that?

    ADMIN – Hi December,

    The sign for okay is featured on this very page.

    How do you sign stop and bad

    ADMIN – Hi Irene,

    Stop is signed by placing your dominant hand with the palm towards the person you are addressing. Like the policeman stopping traffic. Bad is signed by placing the fingers of your right hand against your lips. Move your hand down and away. End with your palm facing downward.
