Hello Ann, Tini, Henk and SW Listers:
Ann is creating an art exhibit in Colorado, which will include the
fairy tale story "Giricoccola", written in SignWriting by Tini Pel.
We would love to see your document, Tini!
Ann - regarding your question about displaying the
SignWriting...About a day before your email message, I telephoned
Tini in Canada and we had a long talk...It was wonderful to speak
with you again, Tini!!
Tini and I discussed this issue, and we decided that the SignWriting
document should be placed near the ASL video...since it transcribes
Reason why? Because Braille conveys English or spoken language, but
SignWriting is writing a totally different language, namely ASL...
Plus, Deaf and blind issues are very different, and I think that
comparing SignWriting to Braille would only confuse the general
public even further!
Do you all agree with me? If not, just say so...Ann's display is
March 1st...so SW List members feedback is welcome -
