Hi Greg!
Thanks for this message. I just finished a long meeting with our
programmer, and we decided to offer ALL options. People can choose to
navigate with international icons if they wish, but they will also be able
to choose to read their Menus in Signs, Words or Signs & Words.

So we came to the same conclusion you did, which is to provide complete
flexibility.

And thanks for the programming explanation...I will pass it on to Rich. It
may be very useful to him.

I am entering the "Menus in Words" for 9 spoken languages this week. Rich
taught me how to do it. And it seems quite simple. Java is a very flexible
programming language, which is perfect for SignWriter 5.0. And Java is
becoming faster now. It has improved in the past year and a half, which is
good news.

Hope everyone is doing well -

More soon -

Valerie :-)
