I would love to do that. :-) I have to admit that the caption editing was
very easy. The only problem that I had with this whole thing (and you
touched on it a while ago) is that the SW as of right now can't be very
small and clear at the same time. With the video viewing screen on the
computer being so small, I could only fit about two signs per frame which
meant that each frame went by really fast. If there was a way to make it so
that the signs could be smaller, but not lose readability, then more signs
could stay on the screen longer much like English captions.
