Yes. We did have a misunderstanding. I thought you were fluent in one
of the many dialects of Malaysian Sign Language and that you wanted
to learn to write your language in SignWriting.
Are you a computer programmer who wants to develop software for
handheld devices in general?
As far as learning to read and write a sign language in SignWriting,
usually people either know a sign language first, or they are taking
classes in sign language and want to use SignWriting to record what
they are learning.
So perhaps you can enroll in a sign language class at your university
in Malaysia and then we can help you learn to write the signs you are
learning in class?...
I cannot teach you ASL or any sign language personally...
But if you simply want information on how to develop software for
SignWriting, then I would start on this web page and read about the
programs currently under development and then write again with
SignWriting Software Forum
