Smile...no kidding? I remember I donated the SignWriter Computer
Program notebook to your group way back, and I know you started to use
it, but I thought maybe you had just typed each sign individually and
then placed the signs in your elegant dictionary one at a time...I
didn't know you created a 5000 sign dictionary in SignWriter...that is
terrific...that is a valuable dictionary file that could bless the few
teachers of the deaf, in Brazil, who have computers...I receive around
2 requests from Brazilian teachers every month...Right now there is a
young teacher of the Deaf in central Brazil who needs a donation of
materials and I will try to send him something...just as I am sending
to Peru this week too...

More soon - Val ;-)
