All your signs need to be re-typed in SignWriter DOS. Once you have the 
..SGN file from SignWriter DOS, move it into your SignWriter Java folder 
and rename it to lower case letters. Then open the file in SignWriter 
Java, and it will automatically convert the signs to better looking 
graphics. Then create screen captures and then GIFs...once you have the 
GIFs of all the signs, they can go into all these web dictionaries and 
into SignBank with ease...This is the process everyone does right now, 
to get the better looking graphics....Val ;-)
