Hi Therese -
I think it is relevant to the dictionary we are developing and I appreciate
I quickly visited the web address above and the new SignLink Dictionary
seems very impressive. I can contact the SignLink developers to see if we
can work out a "coordination" in the future - Other "picture-based" or
"video-based" dictionary software can also be coordinated with SignWriter
software, but of course arrangements have to be worked out.
There is a lot ahead!
As Chris Priebe, one of our programmers, said to me yesterday...Anything
can be accomplished if we just put our minds to it!
Chris was a librarian for many years, so he really appreciates the concept
of typing Sign Language literature.
Meanwhile, thanks for the information -
Valerie Sutton :-)
