When you send out documents for signing, the receivers often chose to just write the name with a simple font. That is not a genuine signature that represent the actual signer and it doesn't match the signature in his passport.

 

I need to know how to disable the "Type" functionality, so that the signers actually use their correct signature.

 

Example from document signing dialog:

 

Written text and not a genuine and valid signature.

How do I deny use of the "Type" function?

Valid signature that cannot easily be replicated by another signer:

Your assumptions about the "validity" of a hand-written signature are wrong.

In fact, it's extremely easy to duplicate such a signature, especially if done digitally.

If you want a signature that can't be duplicated then use a proper digital signature, not a "wet" one.

Note that even that kind of signature doesn't prove the identity of the signer. For that you would need to use a third-party service that issues the digital signature profile after validating the person's identity.
