Hi Stuart!
I personally have no experience with Windows NT, but a friend told me that
Windows NT does not access MS-DOS. Is this correct? If Windows NT cannot
access MS-DOS, then clearly it cannot run SignWriter 4.3, which is an
MS-DOS program.

Of course, this is one of the many reasons why SignWriter 5.0, and other
new software is needed for SignWriting. I have been aware of this problem
for years :-)

Did a manual come with your Windows NT? It might explain about using MS-DOS
with Windows NT.

Please inform us when you find out!

All the best -

Valerie :-)
