Thank you, Charles, for this comment. Gallaudet's Learning Center has
already received copies of our newer materials, including several copies of
SignWriter 4.3 for MS-DOS, and our Lessons in SignWriting Video Series. So
if there is someone on campus at Gallaudet, perhaps they could request that
the Learning Center make those materials more readily accessible.

In regards to the Nicaraguan materials, it is my understanding that the
books written in Nicaraguan Sign Language in SignWriting are not being
distributed to the general public. I believe they are only given to Deaf
students in Nicaragua. The best source for information on this is the
Nicaraguan Sign Language Projects, directed by James and Judy Shepard-Kegl:

The Nicaraguan Sign Language Projects, Inc.
Directors: Dr. Judy Shepard-Kegl & James Shepard-Kegl

Thanks very much for your steadfast interest -

Valerie :-)
