The various courts shall provide by court rule for the method of electronic signature to be used and to ensure the authenticity of the electronic signature.

            B. For the purpose of an appeal as provided in Article 2083, no appeal may be taken from a final judgment until the requirement of this Article has been fulfilled.

An appeal may be taken from a final judgment under Article 1915(A) without the judgment being so designated.
