Dear SignWriting List members and Anne-Claude:
Glad to hear you had a good meeting with your teachers in 
French-Switzerland. For me to create a special Swiss-French version of 
SignWriter DOS for you, I will need photos or illustrations of the 
handshapes used in French-Swiss Fingerspelling plus the numbers 0-10.

You could scan the illustrations and attach it to an email message, but 
faxing will be fine too... SignWriting users in Japan, Colombia and 
Norway are waiting for work from me, so it is good to plan in advance. 
It may take a month at least, before I could get to it...My fax number 
is below...  Val ;-)
