> Hi Val,
> The process to create a new fingerspelling option is a two step
> process. Step 1) create a list of letters and the associated FSW
> strings. Step 2) properly center the FSW strings so that the
> constructed fingerspellings will properly align.
> Step 1 needs to be done by someone who knows the target language.
> Primarily, they need to create the entries in SignPuddle for all of the
> fingerspelling letters. After that, they can point me to the correct
> puddle/entries, or they can help me and compile the list for me like the
> examples below.
> The FingerSpelling feature of SignPuddle uses a simple text file per
> set. Here are the first 3 lines for ASL:
> The Germain Sign Language is interesting because it has letter

> Step 2 is more involved and usually takes me an hour or two. Each FSW
> string needs to be re-centered so that the center of the palm is the
> center of the sign. I created a simple page that helps me re-center the
> For each letter, paste in the FSW string and adjust the horizontal and
> vertical offsets accordingly. Once the sign is properly re-centered,
> copy the new FSW string and paste it into a text file.
> After the text file has been created with all of the re-centered signs,
> I can install it on SignPuddle online and it will be available in the
> FingerSpelling feature.
