SignWriting List
March 18, 2015

Welcome Yu Zhang from Ontario, Canada!

It is great to have a new member on our SignWriting List from Canada.

In your email message to me a few days ago, you described your ideas for a project for SignWriting. Maybe you can explain more to the SignWriting List…

Just last week, another student of graphic design from Urbino, Italy, wrote a series of messages showing her design for SignWriting on mobile devices…I have pasted Adelaide Imperato’s original message below yours, here in this email message, for you to read…See more on this topic in the SignWriting List Archives:

Look in Archive 3 and 4 for the recent messages on the List -

And keep us informed about your own project, Yu. There are several List members from Canada - Right now they are discussing the idea of teaching mathematics using SignWriting - and perhaps you have seen the software SignWriter Studio, designed by Jonathan Duncan, from Canada?

Hi all, I'm Adelaide, an italian student of graphic design in Urbino. For my master thesis I've designed a mobile user interface to writing in SignWriting and I'm looking for some feedbacks, can you help me? New mobile technologies allowed me to create a personalized keyboard with SW glyphs, and I would also add the prediction text technology (like t9) in the application, to complete faster the writing of the signs and to organize the glyphs in two dimensions. It's very hard to explain my thesis project in few lines, sorry! Unfortunately I'm not a programmer so my prototype isn't fully working, you can only write a word: house. So I ask you trying to write “house” with my application and than tell me if you'll notice any problem both in structure and in design. The application is designed for iPhone for this reason some icons will be more familiar to iOS users, but it will still be testable for everybody. This is the link of prototype: http://invis.io/AJ23UG0U8 That's gonna take you just a few minutes to help me out with this testing, and I will be very grateful if you could!  Thanks a lot in advance, Adelaide Imperato ________________________________________________
