SignWriting List
February 12, 2002

Hello Sergio -
Please excuse my delay in responding...

Your attached diagram is great, Sergio. Your idea, combined with
other software that other people are developing, will be a useful
tool...

And thank you, Angus, for your response too - You are right about the
keyboard issue - The Danes, years ago, created a program similar to
Sergio's, which they called TegnBank.
They used only the mouse, with no keyboard...but because it lacked a
way to type with the keyboard, we chose to develop a way to type
SignWriting because we needed that so badly...

So Sergio, your program is dependent upon me....why? Because I have
to finish SignBank and SymbolBank. If I don't do that, you will not
have all the symbols to place in those boxes...If you are in a rush,
then you can use the limited symbolset that is on the web, on the
SWML site, developed by Antonio Carlos da Rocha Costa....

So please be patient...and meanwhile, many thanks for all you are doing!

Val ;-)

This is definitely a good start, Sergio! But I think that it will
be too slow with the mouse. Eventually, people will need to use the
keyboard.
