Hello Everyone -

All teaching methods have a good and bad side!

The good side to video instruction is that no spoken or signed  
language is necessary, to show people how to do a computer  
task...which means that for people who can see well, it is an  
excellent way to learn...And then later, no translation is necessary  
into other languages too. Plus it is very fast for me to create the  
video clips...quite easy actually...

So that is why I created 32 Instruction Videos showing how I work  
with SignPuddle 1.5:

SignPuddle 1.5 Video Instruction

And I hope you all have watched them if you can...

The bad side to video instruction is that for the Blind, and Deaf- 
Blind, the videos are impossible to view...but if I understand it  
correctly, written books are usable by the Blind in different ways...

So I was just informed by one of our list members who is Deaf-Blind,  
that the Video Instruction has left them without a Reference Manual  
to read!

So I will write a Reference Manual for SignPuddle 1.5 in the next few will be similar to the SignText Reference Manual  
1.0...just adjusted for the new features in SignPuddle it  
should not be too much work...

I will inform you all when it is

Meanwhile, if you all ask questions to the List, that might help you  
get started even without a manual...

Val ;-)
