SignPuddle 1.5 Reference Manual

Query, I noticed that a number of the signs in the Brazilian sign puddle 1.5 had no signs in them.  When I tried to delete the entries, nothing happened.  They continued to be there, even with refresh.
  In addition, in Firefox, I tried to view many of the sign spellings and the graphics were out of place or not broken out.  How do I fix that?

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 ;-)
