SignWriting List
January 22, 2013

Lasse and everyone -
Adam let me use his iPhone to view the and we really like it! 

One request…is it possible to open the with the list of languages available to choose from first?….

Once you choose your language, then the app always opens to that language from now on? I realize this may be a lot of programming, but it would be helpful because right now it is opening to DGS I believe and then people don't realize immediately what they are looking at… 

But it is a wonderful product and we are so happy to have it and I look forward to using it more myself someday - right now I don't have the equipment to enjoy it ;-)

Adam's sister used the - so it is being used!

And as you can see below, Andre and other teachers in Quebec would love to have LSQ on the

Quebec Sign Language

Val ;-)

So at the moment it is basically a portable SignWriting dictionary which you can carry in your pocket and lookup a sign no matter where you are. We are planning on adding further features in the future.
