I must say Valerie, it is a challenge.
Seeing the thumb and any other finger directly toward or directly away from
you is a challenge. I thought we had resolved this with a half/half hand
with the dark half indicating the back of which hand. Adding this circle
compromise, to me, might be confusing with the circles above the hand for
open and close, like in "milk" or "understand" though I can certainly
understand them. I would find it difficult, however, to be able to read a
sign like "fine", where one needs to see that the "5" hand is used without
being able to see all 5 fingers spread out. Having one as a circle
certainly helps one understand that the thumb is toward you are away from
It's a challenge...
I'm waiting for other feedback.
