Hello Lourdes and everyone on the SignWriting List!
Thank you for your message. Of course you have an excellent idea, and I
agree with you. I am sure that will happen someday. It may not be
SignWriter 5.0 that is the one that works with Microsoft Word, but some
program will, I assure you!
The other day, a group using SignWriting in another country, sent me a
document that is wonderful! It seems that they typed some SignWriting
symbols in Microsoft Word. Now don't jump up and down until I find out more
from them! I believe they simply have fonts in SignWriting, rather than a
true typing program for SignWriting, but the fonts are very nice and
beautifully designed and are better than nothing, that is for sure!!
After my guests leave tomorrow, I will be working with my computer
programmer, Larry, on SignWriter 5.0 again. The work I am doing on
SignWriter 5.0 is something that other programmers will be able to use to
create even better programs, so SignWriter 5.0 may not necessarily be the
ultimate answer, but the work I am doing is going to help those new
So 1999 will be an important year in software development!
I want to wish everyone a very very Happy New Year!!
