SW captioned video

I would heartily agree that captioning in receptive would be faster for comparison studies, and much easier to explain to people.  That's how I taught the entire system in the beginning.  What do you see another person doing.  

For particular signs, it became easier to write your own hands, and then that took off, but, for the most part, a mirror image on all directions could be built into a conversion program, and that would really help.

  Just to let you know I think it would be much better to caption the
video in the receptive mode. It seems it would be much easier to
assimilate the writing to the images.

  All the best,

P.S.: sometimes I manage to get time to read some messages! :-)
