SignWriter 4.4 is written in Microsoft Pascal 3.1 and Assembly
Language, for MS-DOS...old source code.... The symbols were not
handled as GIFs. Instead there is a special symbol editor, which I
entered symbols into...this then made it possible to rotate and flop
thousands of symbols without the user realizing how many symbols
there were...the many varations were hidden under certain keys and
accessed when needed...that is why it is such a sophisticated
program...a real typing system.

Our organization has developed these programs:
1. SignWriter 4.4 in MS-DOS
2. SignBank 2002 for Windows, Macintosh, and Linux
(scheduled release: Fall 2002)
3. TrueType Fonts for SignWriting
4. Unicode for SignWriting (just beginning)
All other programs are created by others, and you will have to ask
them. I know of no other program available at the moment, but if
there is one, please tell me!
For most of the Brazilian programs, I would suggest asking Antonio Carlos....
