Congratulations, Francis, on becoming a father - I am very happy for you!

SignWriting is a totally flexible system that can be written either
left-handed or right handed - it is up to the writer. We generally publish
our materials in right-handed signing, since that is the majority of
signers, but an individual like yourself can choose to write left-handed if
you want.

The best idea is for you to learn how to type yourself - then you will see
that you can type left-handed. Why not download the shareware and learn to

Download Shareware

If you have any problems downloading, I will be happy to send you the
shareware on a floppy disk :-)

Just write to me personally for help anytime -

Once again, congratulations!!
