Dear SW Listers!
The SignWriting List is always free for everyone and it is the best
way to get tech support for your questions. So no matter what, if you
want free tech support, please post your question to the List and
then someone will answer you!
It is great if you can post a very short video of you signing one
sign... to show us what you want to write. It is important to see
what we are writing sometimes!
There are three issues related to posting videos:
1. They need to be very short, because the List software doesn't have
much memory. So we have to be careful to just post a video of one
sign at a time. If you have a larger video, you can send it to me
privately and then I will post it on our web site temporarily so we
all can go to a link to view it.
2. Be sure you have permission to post a video that is of someone
else...taking the video of yourself would be the best!
3. But how do we video ourselves doing a sign? Some people know how
to do that, but actually I do not...
I can take a photo of myself with Photo Booth or iChat AV on the
Macintosh, and I do have a built-in iSight camera, but how do I video
tape myself signing? and does anyone know how to do it on the PC?
So I hope someone can answer...how would you suggest videotaping
ourselves signing something?
