SignWriting List
February 23, 2008

Hi Stefan and Peter and Tim!

Thanks for this message, Stefan...

You are certainly just as skilled at transcribing videos in  
SignWriting as I am, so I am sure your support and help will be very  
welcome...

That is an excellent way to start...to write sign by sign as you say  
in SignWriting, and now we are writing those signs in SignText and  
posting them in the Literature Puddle online...

And those AVATAR videos in Tim's project are amazing, aren't they?...

There are actually two projects...Tim's AVATAR videos, and Peter has  
another set of ASL videos to transcribe that we have not seen...

Anyway...I will put my new transcription lessons in a PDF file and  
post it to the List...it might be better than so many email messages!

So I will post that later today, and meanwhile, Peter and Tim, I hope  
you can start your first document, by clicking on the SignText icon  
inside the Literature Puddle and try to create your first sign and  
save it as a document...

And feel free to ask questions...

Have a great Saturday everyone!

Val ;-)
