Good morning, everyone ;-)

Glad to see you are starting video transcription again...Your
writings are well written and I am looking forward to writing my
version soon...

In regards to eyegaze...Ingvild is correct to say that the "back"
eyegaze becomes "front" eyegaze, when writing receptively...In other
words, some symbols are used more in one viewpoint than the other.

Attached are the existing eyegaze symbols...described from the
Expressive Viewpoint. In real life, the eyes can really only go back
diagonally, but not straight the "back" position is not
used in Expressive:
