Hello Everyone, and Jerry!
Thank you for this message. I am sorry you are having frustrations
with software. I do not know why AOL would open, when you double-
click on Index.html...AOL is conflicting in some way...That is
specific to your computer.
But may I ask?
Why are you downloading software at all, Jerry? Why not just learn
SignWriting instead, and not worry about software right now? Software
is not for everyone. You can learn the symbols and write by hand...
See a listing of lessons sites below this message...
Or, if you want to use software, why not download SignWriter DOS? It
is our best typing program at this time, and has a dictionary
too...It requires Windows 98, or SE or ME, or you can use it on
Windows XP with DOSbox.
Or maybe someday you can get DSL or cable internet, which will give
you a faster connection to the internet...Then you could access
SignText online, on the web, and you would never have to download
Anyway, have you been reading the Lessons in SignWriting textbook?
