Dear SW List, and Sandy!
Welcome to the SignWriting List, and thank you for your introduction,
Sandy...Maybe you can be the first person in the UK to create a BSL
dictionary in SignWriting someday?  I hope so!!

Writing by hand is a wonderful experience and I wholeheartedly
encourage it! However, if you want to do a big dictionary in BSL
(smile), you will need some software...

You mentioned SignWriter Java...To download SignWriter Java, go to:

SignWriting Download Center


SignWriter Java Download

When you go to this download page, you will see there are three boxes.
In the third box, it say this:

To use SignWriter Java, you will need:
Java 2 SE, version 1.4.1, installed on your computer.

Download Java 2se v 1.4.1 on this web page:

Did you try downloading and installing the new version of Java 2 se
1.4.1?....If not, then that might be the problem...

Val ;-)
