Subject: Re: SW in the future
Let me put it in perspective: YES! It's going to far!
Think of it ... we couldn't have preferential treatment -- so all documents
would need to have all spoken, visual and tactile languages (let's not forget
braille). "Turn to page 143 for the beginning of the Signwriting portion of
the menu." Ack. Better yet to either learn English (don't flame me!) or have
a personal translating device.
But interesting question -- where *exactly* do we expect SignWriting to be
used? Realistically. I'm still waiting for my Hoover Car, which was promised
to be the "Car of the future" quite some time ago. I should be zipping around
like George Jetson.
"In school" is obviously the first answer as that's happening now.
Valerie, care to add your visions on this? :-)
