That's interesting, Wayne. How does a person who is "auditorily oriented"
function in the world of signed languages? Somehow you are absorbing the
visual, or you wouldn't understand signers. That must be quite hard ....
This does bring up another point.... some people are color blind, and
cannot see colors as they really are, so then color coding would be lost on
So let's see...I have had four comments from people...three really loved
the color coding, and one feels it probably isn't necessary or is neutral
about it.....anybody else see the color coding on the web?
