ANIMATIONS ON THE SIGNWRITING Web Site
I will be happy to place animated SignWriting for the sign for Arab.
So if you want to animate the SignWriting symbols moving in the sign
that will be fine. But I will only place SignWriting animations on my
site...no illustrations...that is not the point of SignWriting!
Stefan is the expert on animating SignWriting. See the front page of
his web site. That opening page has a real sentence in German Sign
Language, written in SignWriting, animated...it looks like someone is
really signing...plus it teaches SignWriting literacy:
So animate the sign for "Arab" if you wish!
