The paper analyzes the importance of writing in linguistic understanding of the text, through the transformation of the original programmed hand alphabet as the font (PC & DEAFNESS). The aim of the research was to examine the understanding of the correspondence between the deaf children, through comparative analysis at understanding of the content at transformation of PC&DEAFNESS into font Times New Roman. To realize the set goal, the combined programs were used to write two letters at the specially designed software package. Research was conducted on a sample of 70 subjects of deaf children, which is divided into two equal and uniform subsample of the 35 subjects, of which one subsample is an experimental group and the second control group. The experimental group was writing to each other with programmed alphabet, with the possibility of transformation of the letter, and the control group with standard script, with no possibility of transformation. Evaluation of results and testing hypotheses about the significance of the difference of writing two letters and understanding at deaf children, has been expressed by the analysis of changes, using canonical discrimination analysis, which showed that the two samples differ significantly, at a significance level of P = 0.00. It was found that the respondents of experimental group showed better results in writing programmed alphabetical letter, with the possibility of transformation of the font.
