Hello Hope and Everyone on the SW List!

Attached is a .GIF file with four handshapes. Reading from left to right...

1. "F" handshape in ASL
2. "F" hand with curved fingers
3. "W" handshape in ASL (one variation of it)
4. "W" hand with curved fingers

You can type all of these symbols with SignWriter 4.3 right now.

Both "F" handshapes are located on the "X" key, on the SignWriter keyboard.

Both "W" handshapes are located on the "K" key, on the SignWriter keyboard.

Thanks for your question....
