The system of Cued Speech has been adapted to represent the phonemes of at least 63 different languages and dialects across the world with more adaptations being developed all the time. British English uses 8 hand shapes, 4 positions about the face and 4 movements, to date the adaptations for all the cued languages draw from 17 hand shapes, 5 positions and 5 movements. Some examples are French, Spanish, Polish, Slovak, Chinese, Thai Tammasaeng, Urdu, German and the full range of English dialects such as American, Australian, South African, Welsh and Scottish.
