Welcome to the SignWriting List!
Great to see a message from you, on the SignWriting List. Your project
sounds really amazing...Imagine wearing a glove or a suit of clothes,
and as you sign, the gestures and signs are written in
SignWriting...That really will be an accomplishment...
And to inform our List members...Gan has been communicating with me
privately about this project. Gan has SignWriter DOS working on DOSBox
right now, smile, and has been working with an old document, Frosty
the Snowman, which was written with SignWriter Java I believe...back
around 1999...an entire decade ago!
Frosty the Snowman
and it is this specific page that Gan and I started to discuss:
Frosty page 1
As you can see, this document is written horizontally, from left to
right. If you go to the third line, second sign, what does that sign
mean? I believe it was the author's sign for "going outside" or
"leaving the house" or "came out"? I believe that could be written
better, but first I want to be sure I am correct in my
assumption...any opinions from List members?
Anyway - Merry Christmas everyone -
2010 is going to be an amazing year...
