Dear SignWriting List...

Bill Reese gave SignWriting and SignPuddle a gift on November 20, 2010...Thank you, Bill ;-)

Bill donated and setup an Exhibit Table for SignPuddle Software at the Communication Access and Technology Expo in Tampa, Florida....

Bill designed and printed a stunning banner and brought his own computer to show visitors how to use SignPuddle - This was really a lot of work, but you can see in the photo below, the Exhibit looked great...

Here is the picture of the SignPuddle table - notice the workshop in the background...see Bill's message below...

> First, I want to thank you again for sending the materials on SignPuddle and SignWriting.   The expo was a success - not as much as it could have been as a local Deaf club had scheduled it's Thanksgiving dinner for the same time - but there were still a couple hundred attendees.

> A few ideas came out of it:
> 1. A slightly modified SignPuddle could be set up securely on classroom computers so only SignPuddle could be used on it.
> 2. The foreign language requests showed that some people would like to use it as a translator into foreign signed languages - either from one sign to another or a spoken gloss to the foreign sign language.
> There was some interest in purchasing SignPuddle.
> I've attached a higher resolution picture of the SignPuddle table and also a zip file of the graphics modified for use in the banner.
