Hello Bill and Everyone!
Thanks for this great information, Bill. For some reason I had trouble with
the addresses that you gave us...... However, when I typed this address:
I did get their homepage and I am so impressed with this. Are you one of
the developer's of this translation system, Bill?
This really relates to our previous topic of "SW In The Future" too...
Developing a translation program between spoken and signed languages, and
between different signed languages...written in SignWriting...would be a
wonderful future development.
Work on that kind of a computer program could start now. Because
SignWriting is so strong on facial expressions and writing sentences etc, a
mini-translation program with simple sentences could start now....
Which means in a decade we might have a truly useful translation program,
like the one the Brazilian woman was using in spoken languages!
