Hi Adam,

Glad you like it.

You are correct that SignText does not center the heads.  This is for
display only, so you know what signs you entered.   After you generate the
SWML, you can visit the page http://www.oculog.net/swml/swml-s.php.  This
page will convert the SWML into a properly formatted display.  The heads
will be centered according to lane.  So all the center lane signs will be
centered in the center.  The left lane signs will be centered to the left.
And the right to the right.

The next version of SignText will have a better display.  Not only will the
signs be centered according to head, but in the correct lane.

I will try and pack as much functionality into the offline version as
possible, but many of the more powerful features will only be available

I tried the SignText. It works great! I did notice one thing, however. The
signs are not always centered with the head. I know that this is difficult,
but I have seen Stephan do some really amazing things. So I thought that I
would let you know so that you can figure something out. Keep at it. And
Thanks a bunch!

Hello Louis-Felix in Canada!
Thank you for this feedback. I have now made the change. Go to:


and scroll down. You will find the flag-icon for Quebec Sign Language,
and it is called Quebec rather than French-Canadian...This is just the
kind of feedback I needed...Many thanks!...Now I need the sign for
Quebec in LSQ...at the moment it is the American sign for Canada:
