>Just in case you don't know us yet we are the SignNet Group from the

>Our project, here in the museum (called MCT), is:
>- translate the captions to sign writing (we've done a lot of this, but the
>visual programming staff is thinking in how to add our SW texts);
>- increase our sites (soon we'll give you news);
>- promoting SW in the deaf schools so that when they come to visit the
>museum will be able to read the captions in their own language.
>We are proud to tell you that a sign writing basic course is happening
>here, we began at 27 october and it will end at 15 December. Deaf and
>hearing people (interpreters and teachers of deaf) are very interested and
>it seems that is a "sign writing boom".
>We've taken pics and soon it's possible we'll send them to you.
>We're glad to join the SW List !
