Thanks Wayne, for bringing this up...Good explanation ;-)

Yes...a .SGN file is a typed document in SignWriting, typed with the 
SignWriter 4.4. computer program, so people type their email in 
SignWriter, and then attach the SGN file to an email message. Or you 
can create a GIF or a JPEG or a PNG, and attach it to email.

You can download our free software on the web:

SignWriter DOS 4.4

SignBank 2002

If you need technical help, ask your questions to the List -
