The Talking Hands Award is now "animated" on the front page of our
SignWritingSite, at:

You will see that it fingerspells:


in two-handed British Fingerspelling. At least, I am guessing that it is
British Fingerspelling. I know there are other two-handed fingerspelling
systems in the world, but this looks like British Fingerspelling to me.

Perhaps some of our British and Australian signers on the SignWriting List
can confirm this for me?

As you know, SignWriting has been used for research in England, so we have
a Fingerspelling Keyboard for British Fingerspelling, but I personally do
not know BSL.

Hope someone will visit our web site and then post a message about the
fingerspelling - I am really curious!

Many thanks -

Valerie :-)
