Jonathan -
Thank you for saying this...it is great to know that our work is useful!

And thanks to Adam and our DAC members past and present, for their  
important role in writing their language...

If you can get a web cam (camera on your computer), and then download  
this free software at Skype.com:


and if you can find broadband internet access - perhaps at an  
internet cafe?

Then we can speak in person in both Sign Language and spoken  
language, face to face, computer to computer...

I have taught SignWriting that way and it is free and it works! No  
need to travel anywhere if you have the internet connection...

We have had long conversations from Germany to California to Swiss- 
French area to Japan and so forth...Why not Honduras? ;-))

Val ;-)
