There is a chance that with a more sophisticated computer program, such as
SignWriter 5.0, that color coding could be a "choice" when printing. If
that feature becomes available, it would be a help to teachers of Deaf
children, don't you think?
Right now of course, it is a lot of work because I am coloring each symbol
manually through a paint program - but no complaints - it is fun and the
color seems to help some people - and that is all that matters!
