I am sure you are correct with this Trevor, but I can't deny I am sorry to
hear it. I was hoping it would be possible :-(
We will be designing fonts separately for the Macintosh and separately for
Windows - so the same fonts will be available on both formats. And they
will be free to download from our web site, and we will be including
instructions on how to install them in your system.
They are just like typing English,.....instead of Helvetica or Geneva, you
choose Fingerspelling and the words turn to SW symbols. So will some
private email messages...say between two Macintoshes... be able to read
each other's fingerspelling messages? Or is email out altogether?
